    A folder by HI let alone Bura is a rare bird indeed. One of one or maybe 2??

    reading the posts it sounded like there was enough interest for a run of that number maybe as many as 6--- truly a collector's item.

    seriously we have got to get some wild things going again! let sher or bhakta loose !

    OMG-- lets see a modern bhakta folder

    I could envision a Bawanna micro AKB folder with Nepali stag scales:thumbup: Maybe silver mounted with black horn scales!

    I agree Gehazi, I can think of a number of folks who I would consider one a perfect Christmas gift for.

    I think sher and kumar could both manage what it takes to make a folder

    Ya beat me to this one and I'm still sour about it. If I'm not mistaken this was offered as an extenuation to another dotd and I didnt bother to read the whole thread until it was too late.

    Good get. I hope they make more with that stocky handle type.

    I was a bit skeptical about whether a folding micro bowie could be feasible while keeping the same blade width, so I did a rough sketch of the concept (starting by tracing a photograph of my IBBB, keeping the same blade width, and adding maybe a half inch to the overall length of the original batch). Now I'm a believer!

    Thank for the compliments, guys. There are a bunch of design details that would still have to be worked out.
