    I received three request for this beauty and one lucky forumite snowwolf will add this to his ever-growing collection.
    Thank you all for your interest in this beauty and I will try to get more made as soon as situation gets better in Nepal and shop.

    If you could see me now... I'd be doing the snowshark dance of happiness ;-) Thuche!!!!!!!

    You bet!

    I don't know if the M43 comes with a scabbard/sheath. If not, I'll add one of those donation leather sheaths.

    Congratulations Snowwolf, take good care of her now, she was beautiful and a dream to wield, unreal excellent balance. And have no worries, it came with the standard beautiful sheath, also polished the beautiful blade with some extra mild polish and a light coat of mineral oil for the trip back to Yangdu, enjoy.

    Yep...

    I actually spoiled myself twice. As I also sent one of my Micro Bowies to a local knifemaker artist for a rehandling job.

    The next box from Auntie will be full of greatness.

    I'm sad that it didn't meet your expectations. I also understand the pressure of "if you could have only one". In this case, that particular heavy piece wouldn't be my choice either. But since I'm little further than you in my career path, I can afford few more. Some to play/train/work with and some just to look at.

    Your M43 will go in my collectible item stash. I will keep it squeaky clean.

    Can't say the same about the Vojpuri in the other tread. It is as subtle as Godzilla walking the park.
    It destroys everything I'm throwing at it.

    I really like the old nature books with watercolors of plants and animals, old atlas, as well as any books about mythology, religion or history. Not really into anything having to do with american civil war, more interested in world history but america 1850 and before is fine
