I just recieved my first Khukuri, a very gracious gift from someone over at Blade Forums. It is a 18" M43 from Himalayan Imports (http://www.himalayan-imports.com/), WOW what a blade, now named Taker (I don't usually name things, but this is a hand-made blade, endowed with 'spirit' by its maker, kami Kumar, and blessed in special Hindu cerimonies - and good blades like this deserve names) that is 12+ inches long,7/16 of an inch thick along the spine and 2+ inches wide at the widest part.

It fits my hand well, balances nicely and cuts like crazy.

Here are some pictures:

And here is one to show the size - that is a full-sized Ka-Bar to compare against:

Very nice. I am currently seperated from two of my HI kuks, and I was reminded of how much I love my WW II when I was in GA for Christmas...

Taker is a beautiful blade.
What men have blades such as this, from them demons shall flee. ;)

Kukri's are awesome.
