    I managed to be lucky enough to get the Samsher from 1/1/09.:D
    It is a wonderful khuk. Large, Heavy, and Unique, just my cup o tea!
    There was just something about this khuk that screamed MINE when I saw it.
    The subtle lines of the blade, enough belly, yet a strait enough line between handle and tip, that it can be a thruster. The way the blade flows into the Cho. A total package of a tough and different khuk.
    Once the blade arrived, it proved to be even nicer than I imagined.
    The blade is solid, substantial and sharp. It is even sharper now.;) It seems to have a hollow forged/ground blade. Not the edge but across the whole blade. If you put a pencil across the width of the blade, the center is dished nicely! The edge is nice and even and sounds like it has a pretty large sweet spot. (My fingernail tap test).
    The handle is a great looking piece of wood and as is Shers style HAND FILLING. It feels perfect to me. The leading edge of the bloster is different than any other khuk I have. It sort of has teeeth filed into it where it meets the blade. Very nice looking touch to be sure!:thumbup:
    I look forward to testing this monster on wood, but it is in the teens today at home so a quick photo shoot was all I felt up to.
    The sheath is nicely made and fits perfectly.
    All in All this is going to be a favorite of mine I can tell
    Yangdu , I thank you for this awesome khuk. Also the cool pin and postcard that came as well. A wonderful extra touch!!

    Thanks for your review because up until I read it I had not known that the Samsher was hollow forged like the Gelbu Special.

    Sure makes for an interesting Khuk to own. :thumbup:
