    One thing I noticed is I haven't seen many, if any, AK bowie pics. I have one on order, but you just don't see much of it around. Must not be as common as some of the other knives here. I must say, I just spent literally 1 hour looking at all these pictures. I'm starting to actually believe this HIKV disease is a serious threat to the health of a mans wallet!

    My latest additions. Both blems but I'm not afraid to use them.

    A villager Gelbu Special had a mild crak in the handle. I cold blued the blade. Dosen't really show here but it came out pretty good.

    A YCS that had some rust. I just buffed it to a villager finish.

    "The" BirGorkha Tarwar

    This one should look familiar. It's the probably the sword most HI fans recognize as a Tarwar since it's the one pictured on the website. Made by Bura, I can't believe it's almost twenty years old.
