    HOLY MACARONI! Some rare big monster knives today. Good deals on everything. I'm really close to pulling the trigger on the Kumar Karda! I'm sure this stuff will go fast.

    EMS ....

    9 1/4inch 6 ounce Bilton by Kumar. Satisal wood handle. Leather sheath. I am offering the Bilton and Kagag Katne letter opener at $65.
    10.5 inch 12 ounce Kumar Karda by Manoj. Satisal wood handle. Leather sheath. $60.

    and lets be honest here.... we all know I'm buying the Bilton JUST to get that sweet tiny letter opener Kagag Katne right?......THAT'S the one I wanted....LOL

    Side Note... does that Kumar Karda not remind anyone else of a Leuku knife from Finland area?.... been eyeing one of those for almost a year now.....

    now.... someone save me from that Ganga Ram....please.....

    Its a little bitter sweet. I'm happy you took the temptation away but a little sad to see the Kumar Karda go. The looks also remind me of a heavyweight leuku but much thicker and wider. That is one of the reasons it appeals to me. I've never held one of these. Please let me know what you think of it when it arrives. Also, I think that Bilton might be a Gentleman Belt Knife. Usually the Bilton's are 3/4 tang and have a more narrow blade. This one is a wider bellied blade and has a rat tail peened tang like the GBK.

    I think you may be right about the Bilton ... I just bought a gentleman's knife last week, and it looks almost identical .....not a concern though really, I bought it for the small one in the set lol...

    I'll regift the duplicate gentleman's knife to a work friend who has developed an obsession with my Kuks...

    I hate to feel like I took the Karda from ya.... they come up pretty often, but not REAL often... I like that length better than most I've seen which seem to be a couple inches longer if my memory serves.... I'll do my best to do a review of it when it gets in.

    Is the grind on the Kardas more of a scandi grind or is it a normal convex grid?

    not sure yet, should know by tomorrow.... looking at pics, I'd say its a convex without a secondary bevel ..... but I could be mistaken.... let ya know as soon as the mail runs.

    Even if it is a full convex, it SHOULD be fairly simple to reprofile if you wanted to go true scandi with it.... I cant imagine it would require loosing much meat off that edge..... bout an hour slow and steady with a good stone.

    They are convex edge. I dont know why one would put a bevel over convex. Arguably the convex edge is easier to sharpen and stronger as well because there is more thickness closer to the edge.

    The only reason I could think of would be for carving. Personally, I think a flat bevel or even concave does a little better when trying to carefully carve wood. But I would usually do that job with a smaller knife than the Kumar Karda anyway.
