Mailman brought a little box this AM - The HI label almost covered one side. I e-mailed Uncle Bill a "Whassup?", and he said "Your kid did it".
It is a kagas katne. Kutest little Khuk there ever was!! More like a Malla than the one on the shopping site (
I immediately did the sheath with the Lexol, and then the handle (since I haven't gotten a hoof preparation yet) and noticed intermitant red spots in the grooves. The Lexol had softened some of the dust left over from polishing, and there was a red coat all around, in the bottom of each groove. I don't know if it was deliberate or leftover buffing compound, but the contrast with the black horn was too good to lose - each groove now has a seal of Tru Oil in it, applied with a toothpick.
Harry - in my exuberance, my "blade wrap" was about four thicknesses of kleenex (just a little Khuk, right?? WRONG) Not much more than a paper cut, but a good reminder - EVEN THE LITTLE ONES BITE.
Thanks, again, Alan (for the Khuk, not the bite :O
