    Here's a beautifully done 16.5", 2.25 lb heavy duty Chiruwa AK made by Sanu. The knife had a little rust near the tip which Vikash sanded off. I think you may be able to see the sanded area in the pix. So, all this blade needs to bring the knife to 10/10 is some 2000 grit sandpaper applied to the tip. Great knife and meant to do some serious work.

    Karda and chakma fine.

    Scabbard and frog are excellently done by village sarki in new style leather. There's a hole in the scabbard on the backside near the seam about the size of a half pea. Village sarki has filled the hole with wax. I'd apply black Kiwi polish and forget the little hole is there.

    We'll deliver this heavy duty chopper to your door today for $95 -- $50 off regular.

    Call or email if interested.

    Welcome to the Cantina dhuff!

    Next time, call Uncle first, e-mail Uncle second, then post in the forum.

    After a verbal confirmation nothing can keep your khukuri from you, execept the mail man.

    So just to help a newbie out a bit, what do the acronyms PGA and UBDOD actually stand for ? <br>

    PGA = Pala's give away

    Communist rebals are making a loud ruccas in Nepal, and doing a good job of making everything go to heyll...so Uncle's father in law, Pala (if I remember this correctly) is practically giving away knives.


    UBDOTD = Uncle Bill's deal of the day.
    Uncle's normal crazy give aways...

    Also there is a 20% of anything in stock untill further notice. They really really need money to relocate and get away from those crazy maoists.

    My suggestion is to buy one for everyone in your family, they come in various shapes and sizes so you can fit them to your needs. ;) :p

    20% off the prices I see at the store on andale.com ? Hmmm...I've been lurking around waiting for a "PGA" for a WWII model, but that's tempting :)



    I've decided on this model since I got interested in the Gorkhas, and thus in the khukuris, through stories my father use to tell about encountering Gorkha troops in N. Africa during WWII (Dad was in the 3rd Inf Div in N. Africa and Italy during the war).<br>
