Long overdue Vojpuri review (for scotchleaf)

    I've been meaning to do some sort of review on the Vojpuri that I purchased during U.B's B-day as requested by scotchleaf - however a misunderstanding caused the kukri to not ship with the usual HI lightspeed delivery. Sadly, this was just enough added time to shift the weather from reasonable to typical rainy/cloudy NW... I waited until there was a break so I could take a decent shot or two. During that time, I made a point to bring the Vojpuri to a nice shaving convex edge :D

    So... impressions! The Vojpuri was villager fit and finish, which I've been thinking to be more practical as I wouldn't baby it as much after a workout. The edge that it came with was a little worse than the factory one that came on my 15" AK - not that it mattered as I would have added my own anyways :p

    So how about it's performance? Well this sucker is 37oz packed into 18" - that's hefty! The blade seems wider than most designs which is probably where all the weight comes from - just sharpening it made my arm sore... the added weight definitely makes for a satisfying "thunk" and a deep sink, but also seems to make it more glance prone should you use the wrong angle and technique (very much like an ax)
