    This one is just too dayumed pretty to let slide down the spiral's of time!!!!:rolleyes:
    It's the last khuk I've put an order on and will probably be the last one for some time to come, that is unless Foxy designs another one I can't live without.:D ;)

    Any word on what was decided (by the kamis?) on handle/bolster materials on this one?

    I keep thinking this one would look great in a Newari carved presentation box as well as having its own sheath. Or even an engraved blade ! Well, I have to get to work on an HI Hanshee as soon as I can get some wood planed down to 3/8 inch. I'm going to do a sculpted handle on the next one as well

    I agree that all the suggestions would look Fine, but let's keep the expenses down on this one as I won't be able to afford a fancy version:(
    The Ghorkas didn't usually decorate the knives as much as they did the scabbards as the khuk has to be able to perform its form and function.

    :D Well maybe.;) But that depends on whether the sarkis are as lazy as the dayumed kamis.:rolleyes: ;)
    But that would probably add cost as much as anything other than plain.:(
    Personally AFAIC I believe in this case the khukuri itself is pretty enough to forego any decoration whether on khukuri or scabbard!!!!:D
    You did an Outstanding Job on this one Foxy!!!!:cool: :D

    And the Berk Special ain't no slouch either!!!!:D

    I am excitedly awaiting the arrival of these puppies. This should be a fast Khuk for it's size!:eek: After I get mine, the next on my need list is a Berk Special. One of these days I will have one. I have had to slow down the knife purchases, as I just got myself a 2003 Dodge Dakota SLT Plus. The excise tax and regestration is due this coming week!:eek: :eek: I needed a new truck more than most things lately and this baby is decked out. It even has a little 287 V-8 in it. I have always loved small block V-8's. More khuks will follow, to be sure!

    Uncle should have his hand on the pulse of the Kamis on when the Foxjaw Fighter should roll in. ( Hopefully the Kamis still have a pulse) ;) )

    That's OK. Gives my bank account a chance to recover. A little.

    O.K. I have to put my request in for one also. That looks like it could be something special.

    Or I could pay attention to this being a post from earlier in the year:) as far as taking orders goes. Boy I tell you. This whole HIKV thing is tough. Ebola could take a few lessons I think. Still like the desighn alot. It was the double fullers that made does it for me. Perhaps there will be another run.
