I read that the Old Man is no longer making khukuris. Is that true? If so that is a shame, he created some incredible blades with very limited resources. I'm glad I was able to pick up some examples of his craft. I have the very first BirGorkha Tarwar that he made as well as one of the first two BGRSs sold. The Tarwar is unused, but I sharpened up the BGRS long ago and put it to work. I almost regret doing so now...almost. Although it is probably would have been collector's item now if I kept it mint, that first BGRS is a first rate tool and it would have been a waste if I had made it a safe queen.
