I have been working on a large project over the last few months and it was announced today... There will be a run of 20 numbered sets, 10 of the 20 sold in 3 hours!! I will be working on #'s 11 - 20 over the next month!

Haley Strategic D3K Khukuri and Karda:
Steel: 3/16" Aldo 1095 (with Hamon)
OAL: 16"
Handle: Black G10 / Red G10 Spacer / Grey TeroTuf Bolster
Misc: Tapered Tang, Light Jimping, Micarta Pins, Firesteel and Loop
Sheaths: Buy Brown Kydex (David Killed it on these!!)






David Brown knocked out all these sheaths and could not have done a better job. Hit him up if you need ANY kydex work!!! (http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/member.php/115827-David-Brown)

Shane, they are sold through Haley Strategic Partners Website: http://www.haleystrategic.com/d3k/

I usually get a heads up before they list them, I will post here and shoot you an email if you like... Of course I have to finish the next 10 first :eek:

I did a series of photos for a Banner on HSP Blades, Thought some members of Blade Forums might be interested in them... Let me know if you have any questions





































David Brown did his usual best.... Open Spine on the Khukuri, Piggy back for the Karda and a Fire Steel Loop

Ryan, Incredible craftsmanship sir! You have have labored to craft a fine set here and chosen such a historicaly multi functional blade design with the Khukuri. I am sorry to have missed out on the first ten. If it is not much trouble could you ad me to that email notification list? I would greatly appreciate it. I am adding myself to your listing for when you open up your order book again. I would like you to make a Karambit for me. Thanks Ryan.

All 20 Sets are finished up and glad to have this build under my belt! It was a HUGE learning experience, long journey and I got to meet some amazing people along the way! Only a few sets avail. I am off to other projects! Thanks for following.

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but these are awesome looking blades.

How do you dull the blade and add the pattern?
