    If you have never gripped a knife with two fixed "washers" fit to the width of your hand then you are in for a real surprise! As you squeeze your grip tighter that shape locks your hand meat onto the knife tighter than a crabs arse on a full moon! That is one beautiful knife!

    I had a custom set of Sirupates made with Chiruwa styled handles:

    These were everything a Sirupate should be. Thinner spines, very fast, comfortable grips, superb balance. Rajkumar just did everything right on these.

    The first Bamboo Cutter (Bura). Note that the tip slopes more gradually than its children. 20" AK for scale:
