My worst was a round of high-velocity .22 rimfire hitting a stone about 50 yards away and coming back to chip a chink of roughcast off the wall just inches away from my head...... hard to live it down, missing myself at that range.

Sorry guys. I apologize for my comment. I was under alcohol influence when I typed it. Just a drunk stupid fool crazy about Busse INFI steel which I still believe will be the most suitable blade material for Khukuri.
I have no intention to hurt anyone's feeling, especially HI's. But I do want to see more and more knife makers to make strong, tough, and sharp knives. Probably everyone will agree that, at the end of the day, if HI or whichever knife maker can produce better knives than BCK does, we will buy its knives. Customers' are only loyal to the quality they believe their money deserves.
No problemo, paua.
We are as proud of our khuk's as you guys are of the busse's...no doubt about that. Some of us are just tired of hearing "buy a Busse" that some people spout in too many threads here. I like busses for the record...except for their handles and their prices. When it comes to my khuk's though, i'm pretty much strictly traditional, and i don't think Mr. busse will be hiring any Nepalese Kami's anytime soon or producing khuk's in the time honored manner. Try a Churwa Ang Khola.... I'm quite sure you'll agree that they are one tough blade.
To each his own......live and let live.
So it shall be. Although I like the appearance of M43, I will try Chiruwa Ang Khola if it is stronger. Could HI customer order Khukuri without choil and fuller(blood grove)?
