We've got a new YouTube video up!

It has info on what makes the Kanzo (bolster) of a khukuri so special and shows what kind of skills are required to make one.
If you didn't know we had a YouTube channel then check it out! We're going to be directing a bit more energy into it over the next few months.

What do you guys think? How many hours of practice do you think it takes to hammer out a bolster that nice that quickly?
Take care,
Andrew and the team at Kailash
