Both Yeti and khukuri are Nepalese legends, so they seem to fit together.
Will, I don't know what to name a Sebenza. I think Chris Reeve had the right idea going for a Zulu name. Personally I'm naming my next khukuri "Entwi Dimala" -- Swahili for lion, literally, "he who greets with fire." Yah I know I'm a romantic. But all knife knuts are. That's why women loves us so much.
No, I was never lost. But I was mighty bewildered one time for three days.
Swords used to be named by their owners, once upon a time. Why not knives?
I'm a JRR Tolkien fan, so if I was to name mine, they would almost certainly be christened in Sindarin or Quenya. the only thing stopping me is the fact that in order to get anything other than the most painfully crude names i would have to devote time to leafing though a dictionary. And I'm lazy.
My Gerber Mark II is named "Bloodthirsty" (freakin' gotten me twice now!!!!!) and my Carson U2 was dubbed the "handmade custom knife from Hell" by one of my co-workers. The same guy is still trying to get that knife from me..........
Hee hee. So now I guess I have to ask her what she named her knife, huh Tom?
On a side note, Tom and practice the same martial art, in the same dojang (dojo/studio), and our instructors encourage us to name our 6' staves (called 'bongs' in our Korean style- <insert witty marijuana comment here>). I'm not sure what Tom named his, but I named mine 'Callista.'
Think about it for a second.
PS I still think I missed my chance...shoulda named it 'Johnson.'
