    Rust recommendations?

    current status: after some googling, i just used a brillo pad and household olive oil for the interim. Seems a quick enough fix. I wouldn't mind some long term recommendations though. This kukri is a user ...but only in the summers. Otherwise it sits. edit: the brillo pad left minor...

    Rust recommendations?

    Cleaning. The rust isn't too bad ..yet. But its a little worse every week. I have to act. There are no pits, but there is tarnish and 'rust scabs' i suppose it the best way to put it. ..and i'll definitely try wax. ty.

    Rust recommendations?

    I've got a little surface rust. I let my kukri go too long without an oiling. Could someone point me to some resources? Any personal recommendations?

    m43 arrived

    ty for the measurements; and if the difference between this m43 and top-of-the-line is $40, im just gonna cough up the dough. I might've kept it if a cream-of-the-crop wasn't so close in monetary value ..whats $40 more... I really want one and can only buy once (for now). This is a present...

    Maybe the thing is villager finish, but that was not stated in the description (and i wouldn't know by looking). And these holes would've been clear if a pic was taken of the other side of the Kukri. I feel that 175 is too much when i see much better products coming along in that same price...

    m43 arrived

    here's a slightly clearer one I think i may return it. I would have bought that beautiful gelbu special for $20 more offered on the same day (no contest) if i'd been made aware of this. I believe i will probably send it back for exchange or just pay the difference on a non-dotd...

    there are nail holes in the handle (that weren't mentioned). Like finishing nail size ..the little ones. I'll just put some of that epoxy stuff in there that people use for cracks. EDIT: bah...i tried to post a pic. But my camera refuses to focus. I'll try later i've got work to get done...

    styles of khukuri and knife you would like to see more of

    I wouldn't mind seeing a larger version of that karda (is that the sharp one?) offered ..say camping knife size. I wonder if someone could even toss out the chakma and put a 4"(blade) or so camp knife where the karda and chakma go ..say on some of these villiger kuk or those little m43s.

    Handles and Hand size

    I have another thread where i double posted this question. The link is at the top. So far here is the summary of the information i've received. Small kuks<18": 3.5-4." seems to be the common range mid size kuks(16-21") 3.5-4.5" ..alot of responses within that area (most being 4-4.5)...

    m43 arrived

    You've all been so helpful, thankyou. Numbers are so much easier for me to process than the 'feel' of a thing. I am gonna keep it and use it no matter what; if nothing else just to compare it to the functionality of my next HI (gelbu special hopefully). Now I know to expect: -3.5"-4" on...
