    Man, those butterfly swords are NOICE. I was a Wing Chun guy back in "the day", trained in N.C. for about 3 years. Only stopped 'cause I had to go play in the sand.

    The FF in the last picture was fluffed and buffed by our own Steve Ferguson. He did a great job, thank you, Steve! :)

    The Foxy Folly es arguably the most beautiful of the HI line. Arguably. :D

    If there's an argument, it's likely a toss-up with the Dui Chirra and the rare Tin Chirra... at least by my reckonin'!

    To me, no khukuri compares to the Chitlangi when it comes to good looks.

    The widest part of the blade on both of mine are around 2 3/4". This will of course vary a bit from blade to blade.

    Can you get the 15 inch ang khola with a white handle and instead of brass pieces you get silver colored ones? that would look great and the white handle would be easy to see :]

    E-mail Yangdu and ask. She may have one in stock, or she could special order one no problem. I had a Dukti sword special ordered with nickel silver fittings, since that stuff pretty much never tarnishes.

    I believe there is a "silver AK" listed on the HI website... whether any are in stock right now is something only Yangdu can answer!

    Odd coincidence but yesterday I was thinking about using white micarta for making a replacement handle for one of my khukuris if I ever needed to do so.

    Micarta and Khukuri would look awesome together.
