This is number 2 hasiya from BirGorkha and it's gone already. An old nephew who was at the Reno convention emailed from his offshore drilling rig and took this one sight unseen.
It's also made by Sanu and so marked and it is highly doubtful that you will ever see a hasiya like this one used in the fields of Nepal. This one would be for ceremonial purposes only if, indeed, one like this were ever to be produced outside BirGorkha. This is outstanding work by Sanu and I'll just let the pix save me a thousand words. My only comment is there is some sort of special little deal that Sanu hung on the buttcap. It means something but what I'm not sure.
This hasiya is 14 inches overall with 5 inch handle, 1/4 thick and weighs about 19 ounces.
If anybody wants one of these I'll order them up. Price is $95 delivered to your door.
Blessings from the computer shack in Reno.
