    Been elsewhere for a bit, thought this might be of interest. Reminded me of the Story of Aunty Yangdu on the bus with her 9in. khuk.

    Arrived this morning. It has a circular steel disk guard about 1 mm. thick & 5.4 cm. across. Wood grip approx.8 cm. long.
    21 cm. steel blade is decorated, as is the wood scabbard. 4 mm. thick down to 3mm near the tip. 4CM wide at belly. flat spine with a smoothly curving profile.

    Maybe a Ladies EDC or Gambler's concealed item? Razor sharp, took off a patch of my arm-hair no problem. A slicer, not a chopper.

    Scabbard is nicely carved, has a large crack that appears glued, mint green braided sword binding near mouth appears varnished.

    Humourous that I think of it as a tiny knife when it has a 21 cm (8.15 in.) blade.

    That's sweet. The guard reminds me of the brass handled khuk that HI has. Dandy little knife.

    I'm with you Bawanna, that thing is sweet. What a unique and awesome khukuri. Love the guard, and love the scabbard. Actually everything about it looks great. Speaking of gambling, I bet it is lightning fast too.
