Default That's not a knife! THIS is a knife!

Actually bought 3 of these. 2 are yet to arrive. This one has a 15" blade. Looks shorter but is a full 15" blade from tip to guard. Another has 10" and the third is only 8".

This sucker is massive. Weights about 4 lbs and has a 3/8" spine. Great for chopping.

I've been watching "Alone" too much lately. A lot of people use that type of Kukri for chopping tree branches. Of course, much smaller than mine.

Ever watch that show? I hated it at first, because it was so lame. I mean the participants were so lame. And I really can't stand most reality shows, because they are so "unreality". But it is a bit educational and I can point out all the mistakes they are making.

I correctly predicted the winner of Season 1, by watching how participants dealt with day 1.

In season 2, I said, "Desmond" won't make it. He dropped out before the end of the first day.

If you haven't watched the show, they put 10 people on an island (Vancouver), with wolves, bear and cougar, in the fall. Last one leaving wins $500K. Huge island so chance of encountering them is slim. But, they have had several bear and cougar walk right up to the camps. Season on winner lasted 56 days.

Interesting reading on these

I haven't seen the show but will check it out. Hell Mike, with the big one coming to your area you might need a knife that big. ha

They are talking more and more about the plates shifting from Northern CA to the Seattle area.

Never been "out of" knives. I have more than one needs. Still have an IR laser project, but lasers is not a long term project. Just wanted to see how hard it was to put one together. Piece of cake.

Added a couple more. These are supposedly made from recycled spring steel, from vehicle suspension springs. Not that I believe that. But at one time they were. Made in Nepal

Just placed an order for one of these. 15" blade and weighs a full 4 pounds.



Need to find a nice large Bowie knife now.
