    Strange Cold Steel spotting

    Am I the first person to find a Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri in Modern Family? In season 4, episode 6, a beauty pageant displays 3, implicitly with the intent to juggle them as a pageantry talent. Also, should I be more confused that Cold Steel is in a sitcom or that someone wants to juggle kukris?

    Possible old Cold Steel sighting

    Speaking objectively, this movie is just awful. I'm not totally convinced that Hulk Hogan had a script or knew he was in a movie. Speaking subjectively, this movie takes me back to when I was a kid. The world was big, I didn't notice plot holes, and anything seemed possible. I still enjoy...

    Possible old Cold Steel sighting

    For reasons that remain as yet unclear to me, I found myself recently compelled to watch Suburban Commando. Most of you might not remember this magnum opus of an explanation as to why Hulk Hogan never made a successful transition into Hollywood, but it nevertheless it was there for the watching...

    Traditional Sharpening Services

    I think Jason has been my go-to guy since early 2010 for knives that prove too much for me. He's never failed to bring out the best in a knife. Usually when I send him an EDC to sharpen, it suddenly keeps a good working edge far longer than it used to while being oddly easier to maintain. I was...

    Extended Tool Kits.

    I've contemplated the idea of a slight modernization of the khukuri kit, like replacing the karda with a SAK or Leatherman, and possibly adding a small stone. Has anyone tried this sort of concept?

    How does everyone sharpen their swords

    In the Nova about Ulfberht swords, John Clements from the ARMA uses a blunt bastard sword for tameshigiri. I can't say I'd willingly weather the blow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58NVoTocUOk

    Kukri Knives

    I felt fairly certain that I qualified it as my personal, and by extension subjective, definition. Usually, the question of "Is this a khukuri?" rises in the context of knives with a forward curve and a single cutting edge, so I've never felt compelled to rule out machetes, bolos, parangs...

    Gurkhas battle use of kukri quotes!

    It sounds like your time training with Gyi left you pretty jaded about him as a martial artist and teacher.

    Kukri Knives

    Who are the people you meet who confuse a bolo with a khukuri?

    Kukri Knives

    I won't be the first to say that the definition varies, but I define a true khukuri by the presence of a cho. It has a couple names, but I'd describe it as something shaped like a number 3 near the base that separates the cutting edge from the ricasso. Anyone who tells you what it means is...

    Gurkhas battle use of kukri quotes!

    According to my brother, this is why Scientology has such fanatical followers. Okay, now I'm done hijacking the thread with non-Gurkha talk.

    Arkansas Wet Stone - Hard or soft?

    I'd been considering one of those Hard/Soft Arkansas benchstones myself, as an intermediate step between a Norton fine India and balsa loaded with 1 micron boron carbide. Lately I've mostly been sharpening what amounts to 5Cr15MoV and 12C27. Would my edges benefit from the extra step? I ask in...

    Gurkhas battle use of kukri quotes!

    The truth and reliability of Gyi's claims is a sensitive topic within the organization he founded, to say the least. It's a shame, too, since his skills as a martial artist are beyond impressive. I'd be so lucky to know what he's forgotten about the khukuri as a fighting knife.
