    Suga Knife

    I quite like this new Suga design. Very nice lines. Hope to see a few more of these.

    I Done Made Me A Khukri!

    Beautiful blade. I wouldn't do any chopping with it, but I could see that being a dangerous draw cutter.

    The Mini WWII Project: Or How I Hurt My Back and Learned to Love Featherweight Knives Again

    I wonder what the Kami could do with a cardboard model made up. It wouldn't have certain features, since you couldn't really get the cross-section on the handle on it, but one could at least get the general blade shape drawn up that way.

    Baby Suga Knife

    Man that brings me back. I did talk to Auntie about getting it made, but it was right before a holiday. I also was never sure that certain features that were designed would have been understood. Even some people I showed it to personally thought the jimping was actually serration. But this...

    Ah, what the hell, EMS.

    Baby Suga Knife

    You mean there are still people who remember that? I'm kind of surprised.

    Staying Busy

    Not surprised. Lots of people sang the praises of the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, but we weren't able to make it there.

    Staying Busy

    I came close to buying a ukulele at the Polynesian Cultural Center when I was in Hawaii for my honeymoon. Eventually decided against it. If I ever do resolve to learn it I know I can obtain one without too much difficulty.

    Some History on the Ganga Ram model

    Forsaken82, is that a Fox Karambit that you've ground to be double-edged?

    It has a T-section? Weird. I don't know if that's typical, but a part of me kept asking if maybe it was an Afghan Pesh-Kabz, but you are knowledgeable enough not to make that mistake, and many of those markings are definitely not Afghan in origin. But very odd blade. Very interesting.

    Dang I want that Bowie. Also, a bedouin Yataghan. That's quite a find, since the Yataghan is typically associated with Turks and not the Arabians. Now I want to know the history of that blade.

    Reti Kukri Info

    The main downside to Retis is you do not want to use them on anything really heavy duty like heavy wood chopping. The steel is not as flexible as a normal kukri's 5160, since steel for files is meant for hardness, not shock absorption. So don't use them for high shock applications, but for other...

    Karambit

    A few hours ago I had the idea of taking that blade, scaling it up to a 10 inch blade, adding a kukri-style handle, and essentially having a Nepalese version of the Fairbairn Cobra. I just might commission one.

    Karambit

    George, I want one. That is beautiful. It would be very interesting to figure out how to use that in a forward grip. The shape is like a reverse-grip fighter, but the sheath is set up for a forward grip.

    Christmas in September for 9/8

    Considering the modern definition of a sword (to include a short sword) is 28" and longer, I'd call it a short sword.

    I can see how that would have happened. Early on I drew it, and the blade didn't deploy very far, only an inch or so. As I went to close my grip one of my fingers brushed the tip of the blade. Thankfully I didn't close my grip further. So I have avoided being injured by it. But there are a lot...

    Forgive us all, brothers. For we have sinned. Over a year without any posts in this thread. May mercy be had upon our souls. This is my latest acquisition of interest. It's a Fox 479 Karambit. I decided I finally needed a serious folding karambit, so I looked around and found one. I love this...

    End of month blems

    You need to email her. That's how she handles sales. She posts it here, and then we email her to call dibs. And I think it's a great choice. I wouldn't mind that one myself.

    Wonderful all around Knife and Sword for 7/26

    I'll make sure to get plenty of good pictures for you. But I guess I had to buy it. It was almost exactly the kukri I have publicly stated I wanted for years. I've made no secret of my martial arts interest in kukris, so I had to grab it when it showed itself. The beautiful sheath was a bonus.

    Wonderful all around Knife and Sword for 7/26

    Got the done deal. I'll confess, Amko, you remembering my chainpuri took me by surprise. But this ought to go great with it. I have several Lachhu blades already, and he does excellent work indeed.
