    And a Bura too! You are a fool. Course I'm a fool too and the gehazi's dad's words should be written in stone. Regretted everyone I ever parted with.

    I am currently one falcata less ! a very worthy member will likely reveal soon its ownership, it stayed in the HI blade forums clan , so do not fear. I think a few more falcata will come around the time mine is made, as the kami tend to make a few ( hence the great DOTD)

    I already asked Pugs for the record. Lost in the mail scam. His integrity wouldn't allow him to participate in my evil plan.

    Yes this is addiction. Stealing from family to support your own greedy habit. BAD bawanna, bad, bad, bad...........

    Yep I have to keep my integrity in perfect order, or no one would send me there stuff, and all of it is killer, and I know I have to send it back :(, but the honor thing is better than the thief thing, if that makes sense.

    The one that is entirely in the shot on the bottom right, above the handles of 2 knives that go out of the shot; what knife is that? That's probably the most awesome looking Khukuri design I've seen. Do you know of any larger versions with such a design?

    EDIT: After browsing a bit, I gather that it's called a "PEN" knife? I looked it up on HI's site, but it doesn't really look like yours.

    Well I'm happy to report that all 3 Bowies are now checkered. Poppa and Momma are pretty much wrapped. The IBBB has two passes on both sides and one or two more should get r dun. All three with the similar diamond surrounded by skip line. That was a little tricky trying to get similar diamonds. Pins progressively get smaller, Momma was a bit off center and the skip makes it a challenge but alas the challenge (the skeery part) is over.

    Just need to deepen/ refine and go over all three with a fine tooth comb so Sir Gehazi is please on arrival.

    Dang it, forgot again I can't post a picture no more. Well I'll wait and take one when all three are done and email to Sir Gehazi and he can post it.

    Gonna call it a wrap for today and try to hit some evenings this week.

    nice work, man.

    So having handled a couple of older HI bowies, I was surprised to stop in and see these had flat handle scales instead of the rounded handle scales.

    Yeah, the bowies don't have the traditional kukri round belled handles. Makes em really nice to checker.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I haven't had a chance to get back to the bench this week, probably have to help the wife cater a wedding Saturday, lebanese wedding, I don't cotton to that much, hoping I can help her make the food and not have to attend even though it's our neighbors daughter. Sunday is our anniversary but she has to work so hopefully some bench time then.
