    Thanks cul. I cant seem to put that blade away in the collection yet. Too pretty and feels so right! I do like that River Pirates knife a lot JW. That swedge all across the top is cool. Is it sharpend? That might be a good style to make from an old file.

    I would like to see a Foxy Folly made by Thamar Bahadur - he has demonstrated that he can make a wide blade with deep fullers that isn't too thick and heavy.

    I was meaning to ask you about yours. Glad you got one! So yours was kind of a hybrid then? Wow! Guess they were all unique. How bout that pommel! I think you could bust a coconut open with it:thumbup:

    Hahaha you know you can get an Aussie slang dictionary, read through one at the bookshop the other day, good laugh :D bottlo is bottle shop mate, dunny is toilet. Don't wanna get those two mixed up in a convo :/

    And we could cross sirus but mines only about 20 inches :/ that wasn't an innuendo at all haha

    I'll definitely ask bookie for his curved spine, maybe I can trade him something...like that damn roo that keeps popping up. Gotta figure out how to get that through customs...

    Billhook would be great! I would love to see HI make these (bent one beneath) like the ones from Auntis Planchok village trip.
    Im thinking custom with big teardrop fuller and about a 12' or longer handle. Giant Hasiya:thumbup: That would be sweet!

    My favorite to have HI blade would be an Bahadur knife at 20" long. I believe it would be a good seller if they were available.

    Bahadur was called the "Brave" knife? most I have seen were about 15" I think. :)

    The swedge is just airfoil (meatfoil?) to make it cut better. I've never seen an original with a swedge-that's my version. The originals generally have a squared spine.

    Meatfoil! Even got some meat dynamics built into it! Theres a whole new science there JW. Flat spine causes meat to cavitate behind the blade in low pressure zone and causes resistance to cutting:foot:

    Wasnt there a movie "Red October" Seems like I saw that maybe in one of my past lives? Wasnt anytime real soon I know that.
    Speaking of "things you want to see more of". Have you heard anything on your Scara Suga? Very cool design. I think they would sell nicely!

    I've been meaning to send an email asking about it, but haven't gotten around to it. Plus finals week is starting so I have other concerns.

    You can bet Aunti hasnt forgot about it. She listens to us pretty well. I never understood why they called them finals when you have to do several of them every semester till you graduate:rolleyes: Good luck on them.

    I'm not worried that she's forgotten, I'm more worried that it'll get held up in customs for a long time. Or that the kami will interpret the jimping as serration.

    Oh and speaking of knives we'd like to see, I'd like to see a few Cherokee Roses with kukri handles. The kukri handle is built for snap cuts, and snap cuts are a popular strike with bowies, so why not?

    The Cherokee Rose was designed by a forum member, Yvsa, who has since passed on. It was his masterpiece and heavily influenced by his Native American heritage. I don't think it would be prudent to mess with that particular design. :)

    Curved handles! Got my first m-43 and she really feels good in the hand.
