    Rust removed Knives for 7/21

    Nice snag, Kham. Hope I'm in time to get the next seax. I've been hoping for one of those and maybe an everest katana for a while now.

    Shipping Khuks to Canada?

    Size isn't an issue. While there's no law against kerambits up here, there are laws against brass knuckles & ring knives - Canada Customs can sometimes be overzealous, and they could easily misinterpret these laws in a way that would prevent you from importing kerambits.

    Inherited a kukhri from my grandfather, any pros want to help with identification?

That said, there are a lot of sure-fire signs of a tourist kukri, and...

    HIKV Strikes and Auntie suggestions Help

    The M43 will probably be better looking, but the CAK will probably be tougher. Depends on what's more important to you, I guess.

    Speaking of sticks.

    God, that is a lovely sword cane. And all I've got is a Cold Steel one.

    So what's next?.........

    In your shoes, I'd get a reti, a Kobra, a Ganga Ram, a CAK, and maybe a Giant Chitlangi Bowie.

    Smallish fixed blade do-it-all knife

    I don't know if it's the best option for you, but I have to suggest the Mini Micro Bowie from Himalayan Imports. They're beautiful, handmade in Nepal, and incredibly tough. They're also shockingly affordable - the one in this thread went for $85 ...
