    You must be referring to this one by Kumar: 17.5" OAL, 15.5 oz, with a gray horn handle. According to my records, I got it in November 2015.

    All this Reti talk inspired me to put antler mine. Working on getting the horn off now.
    Those things are really on there but I'm gaining on it.

    Danyen, the last time you sent me surprise, I had to fight the two dogs off as they like Kibbles & Bits better than I do, the little beggars. Make sure I have to sign for it, too, because if they git it afore I do, ain't nothin' gonna be left fer th' ol' man.

    Ha! Uh ...well it might smell pretty good to them but i doubt they would chew on it very long! I guess it depends on which end they chew on:D

    Thanks Mr. Dog
    I can't believe it is still there either. Such a beauty. I'm a sucker for a satin blade too. Especially one with a fuller... made by Ram Kumar... with white metal fittings... and matching chape... Sigh, it just wasn't meant to be for me. It'll find a good home, I'm sure.

    Hey Eric TRB! I got your Dhankute today and decided to keep it! Ha! Just kidding:D. If I'd've known it was that sweet I might have been inclined to EMS it too. I had to unwrap it and look at it before i packed it up just to make sure it was the right knife. I wrapped it up with more bubbles and will send it your way tomorrow. Man that knife is prettier than the picture I have to say! The sheath is well. ...Ill let you tell a bout it....since its yours but grats on this one! I couldnt email ya so sorry I had to write ya public. They used to give you an email option if your nonpaying member but I dont see that now?
    update: On the way Eric. Should have it before weekend.

    Bummer. There are sharks in these waters. That one was pretty sweet!

    I love those little ones all decked out in horn. I've bought about 5 of them for my little nieces. This one is for my daughter. I told her I was going to give her my big Dhankute but she asked for a little one in her size. Seems like it will fit nicely in a purse. Pretty too. Glad you like it. My email is [email protected] if you ever want message me. Since now you have my mailing address too you can send me your big Reti when it needs a babysitter;)
