Sweet handle, sweet price and yep sweet weight!!! I tell you what! My KLVUK got lots of use here in Texas last week! I was lucky and had electricity most of the week but no water for a while. For drinking water I had to chop up all kinds of unimaginable crap unwanted furniture included with my klvuk to feed the potbelly and melt snow and distill it to drink. Khuk always saves the day! If this one dont go soon i might have to do something about it. Dont really need seven? ...dont remember how many I got now but that wood sure looks sweet and it aint even oiled yet! That one is a real beauty!
BTW: Hope all my fellow Texans are doing well and survived this BS. This was completely unexpected on a municipal level and a wake up call so bug out bag just got a bit bigger!

This one has nice proportions. One of my favorite khukuris is about this size. You can't do better for an all-purpose knife.

And since a picture is worth many words, here it is:

It's by Lokendra Kami (a very skilled and creative guy who unfortunately is no longer with HI), 15.5" overall length and 16 oz, with steel bolster and butt cap.

Just for fun, here are a pair of blades that Lokendra made, called "Brave Man" and "Wise Woman." Lokendra held a little ceremony to marry them, and I was fortunate to acquire both of them from Yangdu, at different times.

Lokendra made several of the "Gorkha Hat Knives." The blades are Chitlangi-type, beautifully done, as shown here:

Wow. Those handles are some of the most unique I've seen. Very cool.

Best to contact Yangdu via her email listed at the bottom of all her post. I believe this one is long gone, bobbitybobbity gave it a home. Do contact Yangdu anyhow as she may have others.
