    Still would like to know if about the 17's. Are the bolsters steel? Are there any wood handled ones with a lower cho? Would consider one if so.

    i would advise sending an email to bill with something to the effect of "do the 17" sirupties have steel bolsters? do you have any that have a cho thats closer to the bolster then shown in the picture?" (include link to picture, as well as the dotd page)

    villagers come standard with steel bolsters and buttplates, but to know for sure youd have to ask bill. same with the extendo cho... i do kinda wonder why the kami's like making them that way...

    I have a 20" villager that I got some time back. Just about my favorite as far as a user goes. Bomb proof would be a understatment.They come around but just not that often. I think that the villagers are the best value, amoung some great values, that you can get from Uncle Bill.

    I have tried that before on other stuff and didn't get a reply so I kind of gave up and figured that e mail was only for ordering stuff. I was hoping if he felt like answering he might see it here and answer, rather than me bugging him with an e mail.

    I have a 17" Villager Sirupati by Kumar from the last run. It is a nice blade, and the handle looks much better after sanding and finishing it.
    It is a great buy.
