    This one took a considerable amounts of effort. It was a blem that had some rust removed. It did not arrive bright and shiny like all the top shelf items. I don't have the proper commercial polishing machine, probably a good thing. After many hours of hand work, blocking up to 1500 grit, Semichrome and white rough on a hand drill powered buffing wheel and it came out great. Loads of elbow grease but, that's OK..

    I try to detail the ones needing such one a day. This Everest Katana was sold as a blemish. After going over it many times, I'm not sure why.

    The little bugger is cool. Nice size utility knife, really deep fuller, no cho but very sharp and nice wood working. Unfortunately this one developed a crack the length of the handle during shipping. It has since disappeared with epoxy, shaping and polishing. Nice work for a beginner Kami and related to Auntie.

    The other two are formidable beasts from opposite schools. One light fast and wickedly sharp. The other a heavy brute with two edges of equal sharpness. Both showing the usual superlative work of Kumar.

    I've been wanting to post the twin Teardrop Khukris for awhile.

    Not sure if the composure is correct, it's the only way the looked correct to me.

    It's what Aunti refers to as a Mustang Knife.

    Wow! Even my notorious HIKV is being vicariously fulfilled by this thread. BB, I cannot find a single item in the pictures I wouldn't love to have in my collection. Color me green with Envy the same as so many of the folks on the thread. Some incredible pieces including some fairly rare pieces you have. Yes indeed, LOVELY! Thank you for sharing in enough detail to help keep my withdrawals at bay for a little while. :D

    Shav, that's not your HIKV being fulfilled, that's it being exacerbated. Thankfully it's a wonderful disease, so by all means let's exacerbate it.

    Shavru, if you wish to ever handle one of my collection pieces, just let me know. I'd gladly ship it to you for your review. I'd just ask you paid for the shipping back. I would trust it in your well being. For you, it shall be. That said, anyone else that would like to check any of them out, just ask. I'll send them, just promise to return them.

    I guess I should have included some caveats. Well, rest assured you and Shavru are on the list.
