I whole heartedly agree with Blackdog. IMO both Bill and Craig sell kukris that are well made and sincerely appreciated by their new owners. I know I do. I bought from both. You can not go wrong buying from either one. I know when I started collecting kukris I did not much. Not everyone has enough money to go out and purchase a higher costing kukri. If you remember, some of the cheaper Village models turned out to be pretty good. If you do not like Bill or Craig please do not slam them. Nit pick their products to death but not the men selling the knives. It is time to chill. If you don't like it don't buy it. The sun will still come up tomorrow. Good night all.
