    I'm poor today, but that 17.5 GR is calling. Someone buy it please.

    What are all the tools with the Dui Chirra? What does one do with them?

    Got that one today, you could smell it in the box,before it was opened, it's great. I liked the balance of it and thought it might be an every day user, wanted the villager to compare. I also have a friend that needs INFECTED.

    Nice grab, brokenhallelujah!

    I recently sharked a 17" 22 oz Bura BGRS with sisau wood handles.
    At this length and weight, these babies are relatively thin (3/8-1/4") and fast, suitable for both trail/hiking chopper and martial art applications.:thumbup: :thumbup:

    Bijayasal, or Indian kino tree is evidently an important medicinal and timber tree.

    yeah... I love my ak, but it definately feels more like a "working knife" than something martial. I appreciate the confirmation on that littlek. we will have to do a thread when I get mine. eh?

    OK, brokenh.
    Also, don't get fooled by the plain look of the villager.
    After cleaning and some woodchucking, it might turn out that you've got a nicely grained or patterned wood.

    I am not knowledgeable about proper wood treatments, but there is a plethora of information on the forum. For example, Ferguson, Yvsa, Arty, Daniel Koster, Ddean and others (sorry if I left out some authority) have posted great advices on how to bring out the best looks out of a wood.

    The plain look is part of what I like about the villagers. There is something to an aesthetic that just screams "functionality" that I really appreciate.

    Just spoke to Yangdu -- "Done deal will ship today." She also felt it was necessary to warn me that this one is very sharp.

    I like the sound of that!

    Cool Sogguy, you'll have to post your opinion of the Kapur wood in my thread. (Kapur wood). Interested in what you have to say.
