    A recent thread got me thinking about a thread that showed off some of HI offerings to help out newer people, or people who just like seeing pictures of great knives. I figure it's about time we had a thread with nothing but HI eye candy. So as a result this thread is born, a thread to post your pictures of HI knives.

    I will start out with a few favorites of mine. In order they are Foxy Folly, Bagh Bhairab, Munk Chunk Cleaver, and Villager Ganga Ram.

    Great idea Skyler. I especially like the fact that you labeled your knives so newbies like myself know at what they're looking.

    Here are some larger pieces by Sher (Seaxs aren't large but looked good here).

    [​IMG]

    on bottom
    36" --- 53.2 oz Tibetan Long Sword
    left to right
    14" --- 16.2 oz Seax
    30" --- 44.9 oz Kobra
    27.5" - 45.1 oz Indonesian Sword
    21.75" -42.1 oz Bhutan Sword
    27.75" -57.6 oz Indonesian Sword
    25" --- 42.3 oz Chitlangi
    14" --- 17.6 oz Seax
    on top
    23" --- 38.6 oz Bag-Bhairab
    19.5" - 40.3 oz Chiruwa Ang Khola

    The 57.6 ounce Indonesian arrived today - AWESOME:D For when you absolutley positively have to utterly destroy something quickly. It actually doesn't feel too heavy in the hand since Sher made this one with a generous handle.

    Now my two Chitlangi's, a 21 inch by Sher and a Grand Baby by Vin:

    Finally, my new 15 inch Kobra by Sher:

    My pic's are probably blurry. I've had 11 cups of Joe today. That coupled with my absolute lack of picture taking ability combine for blurry pictures.

    That's a great picture Ted. I can never seem to get all the blades in focus and without some bad reflection. I guess that is why you are the professional.

    They are not large only to Khuk fans. Whip a Seax out in a crowded restaurant and see what happens

    Thanks, I'm actually shooting these from the second floor so focus isn't an issue. The lighting is just diffused sunlight from the window.

    I had mine spread on a pool table while I was balancing on a step-ladder trying to take the shot. Also it was too cloudy not to use a flash since I don't make a very stable tripod on that ladder.
    What is the handle material on the lemon shot?
