    After suffering from ongoing health issue for a long time Bura Kami had passed away. Very sad news to all of us. Send prayers, smoke and good thoughts to Bura Kami and his family.

    Best wishes for royal kami Bura in his ongoing journeys. He made a global name for himself and his craft. Fortunately a few younger kamis were able to study with him and carry on the tradition he embodied.

    Red Flower owns but a single khukuri, in contrast to her obsessive husband. It is this Bura blade, which showcases his craftsmanship.


    The old thread where she considered her blade is here. Many forumites weighed in with advice and this “BDC” design by Bura carried the day.

    Red Flower has a very special blade there. Beautiful, with her name and everything.
    Can't get much more special than that.

    His reputation and the work of his hands spread across the earth and still inspires many. I am thankful for all he did for Himalayan Imports and the other kamis. I'm also proud to be the keeper of one of his blades. I feel happy he lived and sad he died. I will pray for those he left behind.

    I'm really sorry to hear about this as well. And sad I found out so late. I always take special comfort in knowing that Bura had made some of my blades after having heard of the ceremony he performed on them back in my old days on the forum. I consider them like holy relics that make my house feel better.

    Amen to that. He was the Kami of all Kami's. Many present Kami's learned a lot from Bura.
