    Khukri abuse by the masked fellow

    I think the test would've been a little better if the guy had done enough research to learn what the "unsharpened little knife" was for and what part of the blade to cut with [oh well]. I bet he would've made twice the progress cutting through the 2x4 if he used the correct technique...

    has anyone here tried cordwrapping their handles?

    I tried once on my 15" AK, but it ended up being way too big when I was done.

    Opinions on the UBE?

    Hi BloodWraith, if one of the HIs "speaks" to you - perhaps you should just pick it up and try to adopt techniques that suit it's strong points. I have seen pictures of Ghurkas with smaller Kobras up through the larger WWII styles - each operator must feel comfortable with what each one...

    19th Day of Christmas special -- Pix Giant Chitlangi Bowie and more great buys

    Yeah, I did a double take on that "Bowie" also - makes all the others look like toys. I'm thinking it's more like a single edge short sword!... Who ever gets that bad boy must post some pictures of it cleaving something. [Hmmm... could this be one of many "stretched bowies" to come? A 17"...

    Need advice on first khukuri

    Just my two cents - if you're going with a lighter brush style blade, a little longer is better. You get the mass out further which helps make up for the lighter weight. I think most weight concerns are mostly overplayed in terms of carrying. Get the type of blade that'll do the job you think...

    Days Of Xmas Pic Offers

    One of the posts from around 11/30 or so only loaded the pics for me once - every other post before and since has loaded fine. Funny thing is that particular post still won't load the pics from either work or home [both high-speed]! Just get a box with a red "x." I agree that those were...

    bluing kukris?

    If the blade is perfectly clean, the polished blades should work wonderfully with blueing - Look at the old S&Ws or Colts - Yum! Has anyone tried Hot Blue on a polished knife?

    Khuk Emergency…Please HELP!!

    Hmm... Were they recommending gas welding or just scrapping it? I like TIG because it offers the most control and the least amount of over-temping of surrounding metal. The inert gas in both MIG & TIG really help with keeping corrosion in the weld. You might want to have a skilled friend do...

    Khuk Emergency…Please HELP!!

    Just my two cents. If you just want a reliable "working blade," chalk this one up as tution in the school of hard knocks. But, since your blade is already AFU, you can't really mess it up any more - so why not try to save it if you have the ambition? [which you seem to have - I like where your...

    bluing kukris?

    Hey Greenknight, I've been planning on doing a home Park job on my Villager Ang Khola at some point. I've done a few firearms in the past with good results. The key to any metal finish is the same as doing a good painted finish - DON'T SKIMP ON THE PREP. Bead blast for a consistant surface...
