    HSI & Mini first impressions

    Copper is a great option to have- I was surprised too when I learned that it was readily available we had the skills to work with it. It loosk great polished and can patina in the most amazing ways. I think there's a lot of potential benefits to be gained from having a khukuri made in higher end...

    HSI & Mini first impressions

    Timothy McLaughlin who runs DKnK is a great guy. He's been a longtime khukuri fan and is just getting into having his own blades made in the last few years. He has quite a lot of interesting models, some with a historical basis and some of his own design. He has a strong aesthetic style and many...

    HSI & Mini first impressions

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! It's great to see overall that you're happy with the blades you got from us. I'm sure you'll find a use for the Mini, even if it's not outdoors camping. Try putting one in your kitchen and see what kind of utility fits to it in those kind of...

    Expedition Cleaver Review

    Wow- that's a very clean and professional looking solution. I've looked into these pull dot style snaps and unfortunately our only option is to import them which runs into a lot of challening tarrifs and makes it a struggle to be a financially viable option. With this in mind maybe the buckle...

    Expedition Cleaver Review

    We've done two styles- one that bolts onto the eyelets and loops around and snaps onto itself (leather) while the other one threaded through a slot that replaced the eyelets and buckled together and could be tensioned up (nylon webbing)

    Expedition Cleaver Review

    Open backed sheaths are definitely a little confusing at first! the majority of the blades we make are khukuris with broader bellies than waists so openbacked sheaths are very common for us. They're quick to draw and easy to clean out too. It's important to have a high degree of retention and...

    Expedition Cleaver Review

    Hey Jeff! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences and write up such a great review :) These are some beautiful photos- I don't think I've ever seen the forest camo micarta looking so good! It's also great to hear that you're happy with the blade overall after...

    Handle material suggestions for custom kukri??

    For all these materials but particularly buffalo horn surface finish is a big part of deciding the feel, grip and wet weather performance of the handle. Polished horn can be extremely slick which is where it may have developed a negative reputation, but if it's roughed up a bit can be quite an...

    Big blades: To lanyard or not to lanyard

    I historically haven't- however the reasons that are being proposed here are enticing me to give it a try on one of my lighter choppers. Hanging it up in particular is a smart one- I've got a lot of orange handles that attest to my ability to lose a blade in the scrub

    Recommendation? Kukri/Khukuri Custom

    Thanks for the input guys! @LordFlashheart For wilderness survival and bushcraft blades we usually suggest blades of small to moderate size. These are less tiring to carry/use and are handier for finer work like carving and skinning etc. Some examples could be an 11.5" hsi which is an excellent...

    An antique Kukri, Nepalese history saved, not lost...

    I definitely understand the viewpoint that Nepal sold some of it's heritage in this antiques deal- however the sheer quantity and similarity of these bhojpure blades meant that they wouldn't have significant value in a museum or some similar. I think it's something very special that these blades...

    Grind suggestions for kukris... Kailash Blades...

    Great to see some varied perspectives getting thrown around guys :) It's on our to do list to update the information we have on our different grind levels as it seems to be a common point of confusion and is a really important part of the overall blade. I tend to advise people to avoid heavy...

    Functional Broken Spear Of Leonidas - Assassin's Creed

    We usually make khukuris and other large knives, but have had a bit of success with spears recently. We ended up getting approached to make a custom spear based off the broken spear of Leonidas from assassins creed and after a bit of head scratching figured out a design and jumped in. While...

    Are Machetes classified as swords?

    It's worth noting that there is a bladed martial art revolving around fencing with machetes that's gone on in Haiti for a very long time. It's called Tire Machet. While machetes are typically used as tools, in an instance like this the distinction becomes academic. They may not be a "good...

    Functional Broken Spear of Leonidas - Assassins creed replica

    We recently had a custom commission for the broken spear of leonidas, an iconic blade from the assassin's creed series, originally owned by king leonidas of sparta of 300 fame. While there's a few replicas of this blade going around, ours stands out as being a truly functional and rugged weapon.
