    EMS on both Kumar M-43's. Got a light weight 18 inch one that was the sharpest "factory edge" I ever handled. Hope the 15 inchers are just as perfect.

    Will do George! I got to find something to shred. Maybe open Christmas presents with it:D
    According to my calculations the blade must be about 7.4 inches by itself. Im not sure how comfy the handle would be? Might have to add some wood or wrap or something?

    The handles on katars are comfortable and "grippy" provided the size is right for your hand. When you squeeze down on the two cross-struts it causes your hand to spread out sideways and press against the side bars firmly, giving a very solid grip. The side bars lie along your forearm and provide protection if you hold the katar straight, as you should. It's mainly designed to punch through armor, thus the very robust tip which actually has a diamond shaped cross-section, as you can see in one of my pictures. You can also swing it sideways to cut/slash, but it's not designed for chopping wood or anything mundane like that. The edges on mine are not very sharp. I prefer to keep it this way for ease of handling, since I don't plan to take my katar into battle in the near future. Maybe after the apocalypse. Which apocalypse, you ask? Take your pick. :)

    I did a lot of online checking of katars before I got mine. There seem to be two main blade shapes, with a lot of variation, of course, and some of them quite fancy. My blade is basically a narrow triangle with triangular ridges down the middle that add strength. The other main version is the shape of the HI katar, as in Yangdu's picture above. Fatter and more rounded, but still pointy enough for stabbing.

    The one pictured below I got from a guy in the UK, but I believe it was made in India by someone who really knew what he was doing. It could probably punch right through the side of a car door with no problem at all. The blade is 8" long and the handle is another 8". The side bars are 3" apart, which works out just right for my average-sized hands. The weight is 18 oz, about half the weight of the HI katar. And here are the pictures:

    Thanks David! That is Khul! I believe your right about punching through a car door. Ill wait and see what kind of edge is has but being a thrusting tool i may just leave it alone. Im hoping it shows up this weekend?
