    I've seen this Khukuri mentioned but have never seen a picture. If anyone has one please post up a picture along with length, weight, etc if possible.

    I'll toss up a couple pics later tonight when I get home with my new phone and camera that DOESNT have a scratched lense of my pair. This is my favorite model of the bent variety, since the Manjushree displaced it as #1 HI product overall.

    Never seen a Manjushree either. It seems like almost every day I find out about an HI Khukuri that I've never seen before (not listed on their site). And a best seller even? I thought Manjushree was a sword, and that HI only made a few of those.

    Use the Search feature (near the upper right hand corner of this screen). Enter "manjushree" or "Ultimate Fighter". You'll get lots of links to threads containing information about these blades, and some of them will have good pictures. You can get answers to many questions this way.

    The Search feature is your friend.

    Used it.

    If the post is more than a month old or so then the pics tend to get reduced to Red Xs.

    Also, I seem to have contracted a disease, and the only prescription for this disease is more Khukuris.

    Falar,, Yes, I am sad to say that you have been infected with HIKV... It affects us all, especially when just finding out, and learning about these blades. There are so many different styles, it's difficult to chose which you like best.. Of course if your not just collecting, more rersearch has to be done to see what performs better at certain tasks... Don't feel bad,, I currently have HIKV also, but am getting better....

    Yep, the Manjushree is a sword. It's my favorite HI product to date.

    The Ultimate Fighter is a VERY cool khuk. I have 2 by Rajkumar.

    Is that just... the most well developed natural patina ever? Or did he cheat??

    Thanks, but I'm good with what has been posted. Suprised to see that it is double edged.

    HI makes so many knives including specials that aren't on their site sometimes it is hard to keep up.
