    Sensory overload getting to open that many all at one time. And the patience to stop for sustenance coffee or food????

    I'd be ripping and tearing and drooling and fondling for days with neither sleep nor fuel.

    I remember most of those, I'm anxious to see that Western knife in the first batch again. Sweet as I recall.

    I'm so jealous!

    For the year, for me :-O
    Nah. Just happy for Bigbore.

    Great collection from what I can see and good choice of multiples too.
    Can't wait for the unsheathing.

    One of them W49 Howard Wallace Knives. I'd forgotten that one. That's a beauty right there. Keep digging and snapping.
    Thanks for taking care of my anxiousness.

    I'll keep the thread going, might take awhile. Some real sleepers. The Ultimate Fighter is a wicked piece.

    Dude you got an Agni Jowla??? Drooollllll. That and the Everest Katana are my favorites of the whole batch for sure.

    Also I picked up a Howard Bowie that is the twin of that one. They are awesome!!

    They look so good! All sorts of stuff in there I have never seen before. I dutifully wait more pictures.
    Ultimate say?

    This Ultimate Fighter by Rajkumar Kami used to be mine. It's 18" OAL and 31oz. In case you're wondering, the top swedge is sharp; this knife has to be handled with respect or it will bite you. What looks like a bolster is just an extension of the handle slabs, carved to resemble a bolster.

    What David said. I'll just add in layman's terms: quite a very wicked piece.

    You know, there are starving adult children like myself in California that could survive off a simple donation of just 1 kukri ;)

    Unsheathing time!

    This one is very much like davidf99's. 18" 34 ounces but Sadan Wood by Purna.

    The swedge on Bigbore577's UF photo looks a little different from mine, but it might just be the lighting.

    Also notice that the cho on both of our UFs is different from the tradtional cho, in that it doesn't have the pointy piece in the middle (sometimes referred to by various male or female sexual terms).

    Okay. The UF is a slice of steel perfection. an acre of martial paradise.
