    I agree, and fell in love with it as soon as I saw the pictures. A few years later Kumar did a 15.5" 20 oz. AK in carved chandan that is a stunning companion to this one, but this is still one of my favorites.

    I've got some other pics on here somewhere, I'll see if I can get you a few that give better measurements.

    Yes it absolutely out-chops it's size. The Ghopte (humpback I think was the translation) is an overlooked design that is almost a grs but has a slightly different profile. It changes the weight placement, makes it very easy to manage but hard hitting. I had it made by Durba as a carry piece, hoping the pronounced curve would offset the lack of size. It works so well it is still a favorite carry-camp blade almost eleven years after getting it.
