    I paid for Gold membership, just to sell these 5 Himalayan Imports blades I own to help the blade makers at HI, in Nepal. I'd like to get a minimum of $900-$1000 for the set. All offers will be considered. If I can get more, I'd be ecstatic! 100% of the proceeds will go towards rebuilding the HI production shop in Nepal, or towards medical payments for HI employees in Nepal, as determined by Yangdou. These blades are mine, shipping will be paid by me, all money will be sent to HI, to be sent to Nepal.

    For size comparison, that is a keyboard drawer the blades are set on.
    As to actual names and sizes, If you need them, I'll do the research. If you want better pics, I can try.

    Again, I will not receive any money on this sale. All proceeds will go to the HI Earthquake fund. ​

    The other three, I'm going to have to dig deep, as they were bought years ago, some, likely, before Bill left this plane. Yangdou may be able to Identify them. I can say with 100% certainty that they are HI blades.

    Ill take the 15 inch 31 ounce Munk HI Cleaver Bowie by Vim.

    I think #3 is a 15" Chitlangi and i agree with the #4 being Malla. #2 maybe Balance? (I believe your right RosenT.) Thx.

    Sorry guys, but my computer decided that it didn't like it's hard drive, right after I posted this. I am back up and running, (New drive, so I lost some info I needed for the blades posted) and will need to sort out the replies and get back with each of you. I'm also working on getting pics of each blade, with kami marks, posted, along with prices for the 3 middle blades.

    Also be advised that this sale is being posted on a couple other places, with best offer of all of them being the selling point. However, that said, offers from Blade Forums HAVE priority over the other sites.
