    Ha, I was thinking about that one as a Christmas gift for someone. I'll have to see what size they would like anyway, so no big deal.

    That officer model sings. It's kind of a bawanna I'm a want you kind of a tune. I love Thamar!
    I'll give it a few hours to give others a chance. I don't want to labeled a Khukri Hog even though I am one.

    Everyone should have a Katunje too. Get one first chance you get. I know Mr. Bookie and I are rivals there as well.
    Both were earthquake survivors, dug out of the rubble to be completed.
    Mines only a tiny bit gooder than his. He does get credit for having Yangdu's name engraved in both. That was brilliant, especially for a corn patch resident.

    For those new to HI and Nepalese culture, Kukur means dog. Tihar means festival. Dogs are venerated on this day. Cool, no? Says this dog lover. This day is part of the 5-day Diwali celebrations. Happy Diwali all.

    EMS, got the DD! Perfect little knife. Seems too pretty to put to it work. It will live on the dresser for a while.

    My Katunje doesn't have the extra engraving like Bookie's, but it does have a Red Chandan handle, which you can't get anymore because that type of wood has been designated as an endangered species in Nepal. Mine is 13" long, 12 oz in weight, and was made by Kumar Kami. I got it in 2014 from another forumite, but I don't know how long before that it was made. Here's a picture:

    So, what is "EMS"?

    Expect Message Soon?

    Email Sent. Just lets others here know your interested and sent Yangdu a request to buy.

    Actually Expect Message Soon fits, the letters are all correct, just not in this case.

    I personally like speaking in complete sentences. I work in law enforcement and codes and abbreviations drive me crazy.

    Understood! We deal with a lot of acronyms and abbreviations in my job too... sometimes I go home and just want to hear actual real words in complete thoughts and sentences! Drives my English teacher wife crazy too!

    I recently sent an email to Yangdu to purchase the Wajaski sword from the HI Black Friday Sales DOTD.
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/hi-black-friday-sales.1625465/
    When I received the triangle box there was a nicely wrapped Christmas gift inside. I opened it to find the "15.5 inch 12 ounce HI Wajaski Sword by Yubraj Horn handle" from this post in the picture above. It is a perfect match for the 26" one that I bought. In fact, I actually prefer the feel of this mini wajaski. I easily cut a milk jug of water in one swipe like butter. This is one of the blades the wife actually gets jealous of because I stare at it too much.

    Nice! I would think the 15.5" would be a neat size to play with. Id use it camping for a kitchen knife or for cleaning catfish and whackin taters but theres prolly plenty of uses. I got me a butterfly sword too a while back and was pleasantly surprised at how nicely they are balanced. I bet the butterfly would slice through them jugs like butter too! Good snag Eric! Grats man!

    I bet you are right. I've never tested the butterfly. I think it's time to see what it can do.
