    I thought maybe folks could post a picture of their collections. We have other types of picture threads but I haven't seen an "Entire Collection" picture thread so far. It doesn't matter if you have one or two or a hundred, I'd like to see some entire collection pictures.

    I'll have to get together with my Dad, after his Bamboo Cutter comes in, and we'll do a COMBINED shot!

    ONE? Not sure I can name ONE as my favorite... I will admit, and this is not because of the history between Nicholas and myself with the piece :D, but I am really liking the Bamboo Cutter a lot! When I sharked this one, someone, I think it was Big W said I'd love it because IT WILL CHOP! That's no lie, it is a beast of a blade and it feels perfect in the hand too. If we are talking about Khukuris only though, then I would have to say Garud is my favorite. Not sure why I like it so much. Maybe it is because I like Jimmy Buffett's music and Garud makes me think of a "Parrot Head" :cool:

    I know for a fact that some of you have collections that make mine look anemic so I am really hoping to see some of them.

    Everyone that has one likes it for chopping, ozbladefan. Since you seem new here, I want to welcome you to the HI forum/cantina. Pull up a chair, look at some pictures of really pretty hand made blades and wait for the infection to settle in.

    UD has some on my short list there, a Hasiya is one of the ones I would REALLY LOVE to get one of, the Banchero Axe, Udha Sword, Bolo and finally the D-2. Maybe if/when the whole Kami situation settles down I can see about getting some of the odder members of my "Want List."

    Nice stuff Ugly Duck!

    I just made it up. I had a HI khuk with a split handle so I chopped it down & made a different style of handle out of fossilized whale bone & abalone. It feels like a fat, hefty R-10 so I called it an R-11.

    They actually make one called an R-11 which was why I was sort of confused. This is what it looks like... the R-11 is on my short list of wants...

    I figured you would see some you knew Skyler and I am still thankful you gave me such an opportunity.
