    Hi guys,

    I have this beauty that I can't trace back who and what. Help :)

    My wild guess Thamar M43 or Allround
    OAL ~15 Inch and little shy of 1/2 inch thick

    M43. The pinned handle and blade shape are pretty distinctive

    No problem. Take a look at the recent thread "lightweight 43" there are some great photos of the m43 design.

    IMHO M43 is one of my favorite models

    I agree that it's an M43, but the spine is a little more angular than most (where the blade begins its downward curve). You can see the difference compared with the pics in the recent thread "lightweight 43". Still, it's well within the normal specs for an M43.

    One thing for sure, this one does not qualify as lightweight with its 1/2 Inch spine. That's an heavy 15 Inch.

    Yeah I have a similar one. Mine is a 15 inch 29 oz by Yuvraj. Love it, but it's a beast.[​IMG]
