    Maybe it's the angle...maybe it's that it's a Bura, not a Kumar, but that Kobra looks odd. :confused:

    Lots of BGRS offerings lately.

    A tarwar and a dui chirra is just too much. I am in pain. Forget it, they are all great. What a block of great work.

    Can it really be called a Kobra? I've been looking at Kobra photos from past threads and this beauty is very different. I think this is a new one of a kind.

    Wow that kobra looks like it was edited in photoshop:) The big thick tip on that blade reminds me more of the head of a gaboon viper than a cobra! Very cool, indeed.

    Yes, that's a different Kobra alright. I like it. Bet it delivers a much more substancial blow than typical Kobra, both weight and the swell at the end.

    It's funny when a 17" GRS looks small.

    I've never handled a standard kobra, but I've always wondered if it was really suited to the chopping blows at which most khukuris excell. With no real belly it always looked more like a draw-cut weapon to me.

    You've seen "stretch limousines?"


    That's a "stretch 12 inch ak." :)


    Had to happen. BirGorkha goes Hollywood. Started with the "movie model," now this.

    Ah well. Change happens.

    With a few more ounces of steel, and a little different shape, that Kobra could grow up to be a Kora.

    Really nice blades.
