This 26 inch Ang Khola arrived yesterday afternoon. It was made by Sanu who felt that 4 KG was too heavy and scaled it down to 3/4 to 13/16 inch thick from the 7/8 requested. I actually wanted Sher to make this khukuri becaue I knew that he'd be pleased to make a 4KG khukuri but he had to go back to the farm for awhile to do some work there. He will inherit the farm so he has a vested interest.
Anyway, the knife maxed out my 5 pound limit scales and I estimate it at 5.5 to 6 pounds -- maybe that will be enough for the fellow who ordered it. The karda and chakma for this model are nine inches and more than 1/4 inch thick. The effort is a 10/10 by Sanu and I don't think I'll ever see this knife again but just in case the customer is set on the 4 KG version stay tuned. This one may be up for sale.
