    Tamang was long gone. Got the DD on the Ang Khola.

    I agree. I'm all about restoration and second chances. I like a good sheath project too. Can't beat the prices on these two.

    For the record, this was not my Tamang! My Tamang and I are still getting along great.

    Amazing chopper and good edge stability now that it's good and broken in.

    I would like to say thanks to Kanchhi. She must have filed this AK forever. When I received it I gave it a little touch with the belt sander and then sharpened it with my stones. Then, I tested it out on some seasoned hardwood. As usual, I made sure to do some bad glancing strikes. The edge held up. I don't believe it will have any more problems. THANK YOU KANCHHI!

    Working on a sheath for it now.

    I'm pleased as punch with my Tamang, too. Honestly, the Tamang might be my very favorite, and the fact that it already has its lumps means I have no hesitation about putting it to work. The thinner stock and less aggressive curve makes it feel like a more versatile knife, if not as strong a chopper.

    Thanks Mr. B! A knife without a sheath just ain't right. I think I'm going to try a traditional style sheath with wood wrapped in leather for that sheathless Sirupati I picked up on yesterday's sale. That will keep me busy for a while.

    Hoping I have a couple sheaths that will fit the 2 Thamars I got yesterday, I don't often need a sheath but like to have one available.
    I made a wood sheath early on, might try making another. Fun project.
