Very cool!!! I have a customers khukuri identical to the alloy handle with sheath in very good shape. I recognize one of the canvas frogs in the pics.
I can't wait until this book comes out.
And Uncle writing a chapter for Howard's book. ( In addition to taking this BF HI Forum to 36K posts alone plus the posts on the KF original HI Forum and archives. That has got to have at least one book in it's files! )
Sounds like we've got excellent info on khuk types and collecting from John, probably a cultural explanation of forces that shaped Nepal and the khuk from Howard, and ton after ton or high-grade ore from Bill's forums on the people of Nepal.
It's a privilege to know each of you ( John, Howard, Bill ) and many others on this forum. That still doesn't mean the three of you can bend over without checking to make sure it's safe from getting goosed.
John that's a Looonnnnggggg time for some of us to wait!!!!!
And like everyone else I am waiting with much anticipation. Unlike many of my most recent book purchases this will be one book I will read upon arrival.
