    EMS. A little rust removal and it'll be a great gift knife. If I get it.

    Next day: Got the Done Deal.

    Be hard to part with that one, she's a beauty. Bet she feels mighty fine in the hand too.

    This would have been my khukuri, had it not been confiscated by Indian Customs. Long story short, I had no choice but to send it back. I'm glad it's going to a good home.

    I love this model, but I'm sorry you lost it for bureaucratic reasons. Did Indian Customs tell you what was the problem?

    Apparently a weapons license was required from the police, which needed to be produced at customs, along with a hefty customs fee. From experience I know that it's virtually impossible to procure said license, since all manner of supporting documentation is required. I just didn't want to go through the hassle.

    Then again, a 21" Kumar Chitlangi sailed through without issues... apart from the customs fee. Go figure!

    I now rely on friends in the States for my knife related needs, who visit India.

    My last was a superb 18" Pach (5) Chirra at just 18 ounces, sharp as heck, by Ram Kumar. This one went to Edmonton, Canada then onwards to the Arctic Circle where a friend inadvertently packed it in his luggage and flew it in a plane. Then he flew commercial to India.

    Anyway I wonder if your Thamar Teen Chirra will have similar adventures!
