    Despite the changes that I made, I tried to stay as close to the originals as possible.
    The blade is 310 mm long and forged from 55Si7 springsteel.
    The handle is made from Ceylon ironwood.
    I used mild steel for the ferrule and the tang is riveted over the butt,
    forming the center of the sterling silver flower.
    It has a wooden sheath covered with cow leather and the chape is silver plated copper.
    Instead of a Chakmak sharpener I made a small wood chisel which is more useful to me.
    The chisel and the small Karda knife are ground from 1.5634 (75Ni8).
    To save space and keep it more flat they are flat tang with steel pinned Ceylon ironwood scales.
    The Kukhri weighs 500 grams and its total weight is 750 grams.

    Cheers

    Turned our fantastic. The whole package. Knife, sheath, the accessories.

    Especially the end cap. Just a really neat detail piece!

    Greetings.
    Sorry for the late reply. Due the pandemic and political events
    we had internet issues for quite a while.

    Thanks for the fine comments, Gentlemen!....very much appreciated:)

    To make this not look like some sort of threat necromancy I added some pictures of the making.
    A few of them I took with my cell phone and they were not good at all.To make them better readable
    I overdrived the image editing program, so the psychedelic colors are neither concept nor stylistic deviceo_O

    Cheers
