    Man look at the detail work on that scrimshaw! That M43 also seems to have a narrower waist on the handle. Looks very comfortable.

    First all deer antler handle I have ever seen. Beautiful.

    That antler-horn Sgt. Khadka is HOT. I'm so very glad that someone bought it before me so I wasn't too tempted. An 11-,13-, 17- and a 19-incher is what I still need to round out my collection of khukris in every size between 10-20 inches.

    I almost sent an email, but my pocketbook prevailed...this time.

    Sigh- this place is breakin' me. I've spent over $600 on khukris in the last 4 months.

    That's CRAZY!

    Is it just me or does anyone else notice something about the plants scrimmed on Kumar's M43? ;)

    Could be I just spent too much time in Santa Cruz and Humboldt County...

    Only four leaves and they are at right angles, maybe it's a Nepalize four leaf clover?

    You should spend the same on Khuks as you do on Gas.

    Looking over the last 5 months, I've seen only 2 or 3 M43's. I recall a 17" 26oz Neem by Sher for $135 and a 17" 33oz elk by Kumar for $145. There was also a gorgeous 18" 31oz elk BDC by Bura that looked a lot like the big M43's, for $165 w/stand.

    So to me $175 seems a little much, but that's compared to the other deals, not compared to what they should be for such big, beautiful, hand forged knives.

    I did want an M43, just am not too crazy about scrimshawing...

    Hrm...tempting...

    I got a 17" elk antler Kumar M43 about a month ago (ordered) and fell in love with it, the thing is a wicked cutter/slasher/weapon.

    You gotta love Norm. There are collectors as great as he, but they are usually much more quiet. (Well, except for that pond swimming honking cave dwelling Duck.....) Many of the big collectors, like the Great Whites themselves, go about their business silently. Norm gives us blow by blow accounts, and I love them.
