A range of Kukri typesHi there,
When I first started looking into the world of kukri it was because I'd seen the promo for Cold Steel's version but thought to myself "no way am I spending that much on a kukri!". Oh the irony
So I eventually found myself at the Tora Blades website. I was amazed at the diversity of blade types and decided I'd like to get 12 different types. As they didn't have any in stock at the time and since I really don't need 12 user kukri's, I thought why not just get original pieces? They're superior in every way and the majority of them were less expensive than their modern replicas (though some were painfully expensive). Along the way I've picked up a number of additional pieces that caught my eye, but the kukri's below represent the best versions of the 12 pieces I originally set out to get.
To list them (starting top left working down):
2) WWI MKII
3) WWII M43 MKII
4) WWII MKII
5) WWI Battalion style
6) WWII Military Sirupate
7) Lambendh or as they called it at that time "Chhetri"
8 ) Looks like what they called a "Military Chhetri"
9) Royal Nepalese Army Longleaf or "G.A.K"
10) Dui Chirra
11) WWI Ang Khola
12) WWII Ang Khola
Of course there are still one or two other pieces I'd like to add to my collection, but for the time being I'm feeling a sense of completion (let's see how long it lasts ).
Anyway, I just wanted to share the photo really

Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: bagman Today, 04:36 PMBasemetal

In need of a panel loading back pack for long weekend/weekend travel. Budget is the lower the better and I am more than happy to go used - I have lots of bags and I don't expect this one will get tons of use, but it will be very useful to fill a niche. I have an Osprey 80 which I have been...Last Post By: gregs656 Yesterday, 10:59 PMChrisBee
I'd imagine it won't be cheap, the xm-18 goes for about $400. Hopefully this will come in at less than my recent laptop cost me. http://www.thetruthaboutknives.com/2017/02/hinderer-debuts-slipjoint-folder-prior-to-iwa-show/Last Post By: earthman Today, 04:38 PMginda

I'm still going through my stag box, this is a Taylor's "Eye Witness". Its a long knife with a violin or swell centre shape with a long blade measuring 3.5" but would have been another 0.25" if the tip was still there. The small blade is about 2.5" long and again it has lost a little bit off the...Last Post By: OWDTOM Today, 12:47 PM
