Deals for 1/5 -- Pix, Chitlangi, Villager Karda and more great buys

I can't believe I missed the Sgt. CAK
 
I hadn't even read the "very special blade" thread before I sharked this blade.
This CAK just really fit the specs for what I was looking for...
I am glad you are alright Yangdu. This wayward blade is not destined to be a shelf queen, but rather a worker. Hopefully honest tasks will tame its temperment.:).
I did not buy this beastie because it bit Yangdu!
 
Let us know if anything happens with that blade. I'm sure it will just become a reliable worker, and not a psychotic slasher. You gotta figure Yangdu's blood is pretty peaceful.

Hmm, Yangdu changed the Chitlangi to Chainpuri and lowered the price.

I do think it is a Chitlangi, just with a chainpuri handle. Chainpuris typically don't have the fullers.

Eric.
 
But then I would have to fire the butler, close a couple of wings of the house and downgrade to a smaller learjet. Also, that gold plated jacuzzi by the pool will have to wait.
 
Dang, late again. :(


That is probably one of the best looking PKs ever. If I got here sooner I would of had to of raced you for it Eric. Congrats.

The little rusty knife was a bargain.
 
God, that Karda is HUGE. As big as the pen!

First I tought the BDC and PEn were small, but NO!
 
The Rusty knife was a bargain. With all the requirments in the design, it was more expensive to produce. I think the BDC is good looking. Everyone has different tastes; that's a very unusual Pen knife. I've never seen one with the broad part of the blade so far forward.

That's right, Willieboy, the Karda is the small knife that is part of the package/design/tradition of the kukri. The other tool is the Chakma, for burnishing the edge. Now, can I take a liberty, and say:

"Tell them Willieboy is here." (always loved that movie line)

it's the plain blade model, though. not sayin it aint a bargain, i'm very excited to receive mine, for which i paid the same price with a horn handle, and hoping it doesn't encounter the knife trasher. this is the first HI i actually wanted before i saw it available. the others were spontaneous impulse buys.

i agree about the BDC. I agree about the pen. I agree about the tastes. my first picks today would have been the Sgian Dubh and the BDC. I've yet to fall into the Sgt's fanbase.
 
Many people consider the good Sgt the best. I don't- though he does pay more attention to detail and finish- his name is on it, after all, and the funds go for education. You get a strong sense of quality and personal pride, and every Sgt blade is always a good choice. I don't believe in 'bests' anymore, and if I did, my nod would probably go to Sher. I like HI's guarentee for its own blades, too.

I thought the BDC was very well done, it seemed to stand out as a fine rendition of the type, and that's considering all the BDC's have been winners.
The Rusty knife, I noticed, was a little more slender than my own, and I suspect closer to the desired form for that type of tool.

I don't weigh in much anymore on the blades. The new voices are doing a fine job. But it is nice every once in awhile to hold my breath and get a little wonder following HI's advancing product line.

HI is to kukris what Ruger is to firearms, I think. They make just about everything, do it well, and have extra attention to strength and durability.

Only once- and in fun.
I'm behind the learning curve, and if I haven't previously said 'welcome' to HI forum:
Welcome.

interesting. i'm always wondering why ruger doesn't make a pump. still, i love many of their products. dyin to get an alaskan .454. i'd wear it in a crossdraw at the khompound, among other fine hardware.
 
I've always wanted a Ruger 480 Super Redhawk. I love large bore revolvers, and the 480 really hits the sweet spot of reasonable power without pointless high pressure.
I like revolvers the same reason I like a WWll kukri- big enough to do the job, classic lines, and reliable.
