UBDOTD -- 12/27. Excellent Malla by Kumar. Pix & bargain time!

Mar 5, 1999

Here is a 10/10 Malla khukuri by Kumar -- 18.5 inches and 1.75 pounds. Fit, finish, hardness all 10/10. Beautifully executed. Handle very nicely done in saatisal. Nothing more to say.

Karda and chakma same treatment as big brother. Excellent.

Handtooled scabbard very nicely done by sarki with no name. 100 year HI superfrog.

We will deliver this rig to your door for $125 and this is an Uncle Bill best buy. You will have to look long and hard to find this much knife for this price.

Call or email if interested.

Blessings from the computer shack in Reno.

That is really nice! Kumar can really do a job when he wants to. From the pic, this looks almost as nice as the 18" AK that I had. The only thing that detracts in any way from the looks of this one is the lack of matching bolster on the chakma. Otherwise, I just wish I had a bit less debt to pay off.

A tool is, basically, an object that enables you to take advantage of the laws of physics and mechanics in such a way that you can seriously injure yourself.
The Malla is a real nice rig!!
I have handled Terry Sisco's and I really like it. Perhaps one of these days when I don't have any priorities if that ever happens.

I am saving up for a couple of more YCS models though.
I want one for Barb and a plain one for myself.
I think the Silver Mounted YCS will be a nice Valentine's Day gift for Barb if it gets here in time.

I kind of like the bolstered karda and unbolstered chakma. Tells you which is which even in the scabbard. Did you get a new shipment in, Uncle?
For enquiring minds who want to know, this is what an Uncle Bill's Deal Of The Day ( UBDOTD ) is like. Back to the top so DD can see for himself. Sorry, but they sure go fast.
