    What's the point of the pointy sheath?

    Never did care much for the pointy thing on the sheath. I just heat up the metal til the goop gets gooey & then slowly ease the metal cap off of the leather.

    Lucky kid. Side note: Haven't used a hatchet or a machete since I got a khuk. Khuks are just more satisfying somehow...

    Whose got the best Khukri injury?- WARNING GRAPHIC!

    Iceveign.... you win. Now I don't feel so bad about my own stupidity. Had insomnia, so I decided to sharpen my Everest Katana at 1:30 AM using a new method. Didn't notice that everything was working its way to the edge of the bench, then everything fell of the edge & the sword caught my...

    I don't mean to brag, but...

    Nice blade! Unlike Crimson, I do like the tanto blade. Really strong tip compared to non-HI products. (HIs are such tanks that tip strength is not an issue). My EDC folder is a tanto blade. Really like the Chitlangi Tanto!

    Help ! Damaged 20" Thirtha made AK from DOTD

    I dinged a really nice Bura khuk last week hacking down some Himalayan Blackberry briars. Didn't realize there was a piece of rebar sticking up out of the ground till i heard the CHINK! Won't take much to fix it, though. Actually not too bad for hitting an edge against a steel bar. Also...

    When was the last time your HI piece scared the soul outta ......?

    Coupla summers ago I was down in the creek hacking back some prickly overgrowth with a Tarwar (a long-blade Tarwar can cut it back without getting stickers in your hands). Some poor unsuspecting hiker came wandering down the creek & was slightly concerned that she just had stumbled upon a...
