Could you please post pics (and specs) of the largest kuks you have if they are uncommonly large for a particular model. E.g., do you have a WW II, YCS, FF, or an M43 longer than 18'5", a Chit or a GS longer than 21", etc. The more outrageous, the better. :)
Thanks!

Years ago Uncle Bill told me how a customer had special ordered an overly large Ang Khola. I loved the idea so I special ordered a 25" AK. It arived the day after I saw the 1999 flix Godzilla. The AK reminded me of Godzilla so that became it's name. Sometime later I sold Godzilla to my friend Roger Smith, we go camping once in a while and he's kind enough to let me play with my old friend for a bit. Roger recently took the following pics of Godzilla for me to post in a different thread but I forgot to. Figure they'd work here just as well. Enter Godzilla!!

Kinda looks like an ordinary khukuri without some sort of scale. Could even be a small one. You probably know how big that door or piece of fence is, but we don't.

In the movie, a character sees Gojira and declares: 'We need bigger guns!'."

Well, we need bigger kuks!

The planks should give you an idea. If you handled a khuk before you should be able to estimate the ratio.
Nevertheless i'm here to give Wildmanh some Booyaashaka:

There was a 40"+ monster sold or given a couple years back. Mind boggling size and weight. Is that the monster Ganga Ram of Dave Rishar's that was referred to?

Anyone know the weight of this thing, or think they can make an educated guess (to within a pound or so)?
You will find some infos about it if you use the search engine.

Another spoiler:

I think Dave Rishar's is the largest.

If you go with derivatives, the best I can do is:
(Falcata, top, 29")
(Bhairab, second, 24")
(CAK "Kukzilla", third, 25")
(Giant Chitlangi Bowie -- not a kukri, but, fourth, 24.5")

Specs are listed in my last post. BTW the fence slats are about 6" wide if that helps. If anyone wants in hand shots they need to ask Roger, or his wife, since she actually took those pictures. ;)

There are some Beastly big Khukri's out there, that's for sure. Was thinking about this thread just the other day. Snowwolf, thanks for digging it up. :)

If I remember correctly, some of those really big ones were 6 to 9 pounds!
