Long time lurker, first time poster. Sent mail to attempt this beauty. Thanks all. Hoping I get it, and not feeling too guilty as I gave it many days before attempting from the long timers and much more educated than me on the wonderful heirlooms.

Holy Guacamoley Dude! You should be pleasantly surprised! That is one beautiful Kobra! I got one just the same specs thanks to cul4u! I think most peeps in hiscircles call him Richard but that is one fine knife! Before I used a 25" Sirupati which I still dont neglect but the light weight of the Kobra dont compare to anything unless there was such a thing as a 25" Reti but to this day I've never heard of one. You did good sir! Please update your experience with us if yaq can. Im very curious to know what you think of it! Mine gets lots of regular use for what you would normally use a machete for but Kobra is much more fun! Grats man!! ENJOY!!!

Wow this is amazing.


It is not a brand new, from the factory, out of shrink wrap, made by CNC, thin knife.

The wood is not perfect. The rings cut into it, are not from a lathe. They appear to be hand carved and are beautiful.

Being a novice, I would not describe this Kobra as being light. It is not heavy, but it is substantial.

I know nothing. My only comparison to something where the exposed blade is 25" long, is a Katana, a machete, or any of a dozen cheap movie replicas.

It is very sharp. It appears to be hand sharpened. I find it a little awkward 2 handed. With 1 hand, a proper hold is important to minimize jarring my wrist. I will do more research here.



I cannot wait to use it to clear some low branches in the forest outside my home.

I am awed by the thick spine. There is a lot of metal here, and even if abused I know I could resharpen.

This truly is an heirloom and I feel a quiet peace holding it.

Yangdu thank you for sharing such a treasure.

Now I am hooked.

cheers

Use them rings on the handle man! They are the center of rotation on the strike. If your not using them then your not utilizing their designed purpose. That blade is long enough that you dont even have to utilize your elbow when blowing chunks! Simple flick of the wrist much like using a bullwhip and you can take advantage of some serious power. Glad you like it! They are not light compared to most manufactured but you dang sure can take advantage of that weight without getting carpal tunnel and such. Grats on a beautiful knife and welcome to the forum! Please dont be a stranger!
