    Thanks

    I would thank everybody had the idea to start this Forum.
    I'm deeply interested in learning about this weapon from
    knowledgeble people.

    Now we lack only a Keris/Kriss devoted Forum...

    Best wishes.
    Please forgive my english.

    Hi Carlo,

    You're welcome! We have some very dedicated kukri folks checking in, so I suspect you'll get an eyefull. Stay tuned.

    Finally a thread here in the new forum I can post on!

    Yep, thanks from here too. I had a kukri somewhere, and if I get it back, I'll post some pictures. But I think it's modern.

    Hi Carlo!

    We're getting truly international with one of the world's most beautiful blades! Wha-hooo! Glad you're here, Amigo. Your knowledge of weaponry, usage, and style are sure going to be welcome!

    Say Carlo, Italy has some of the world's finest artisans, making some of THE FINEST weapons on Earth. (I have some that I do depend upon in case of disagreeable "social circumstances." Their brothers are in use with Marines, SEALS and DELTA Force personnel in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Philippines . Only the BEST when your life is on the line...)

    Do you think any of them might become interested in Khukuris? Can you imagine the filigree, or detail in how they could be etched? Shucks, they'd go straight from the Italian Kami and Sarki, to museums!!!

    AND, if Khukuris could get a toehold in Italy, SOMEBODY would be sure to formalize it's combat usage... I kinda like that idea, Carlo...

    Think about it, Compadre... (Sorry, if I tried to use Italian, I'd probably be challenged to a duel for gross missuse, or be the cause of a war... Italy's one of the few countries in the world I really long to visit, and I'd never dishonor such a great nation...)

    Anyway, Welcome to Everybody! Krazy and Kookie for Khukuris!

    May you all fare well, and have a great weekend...

    Take care, stay safe, and have lots of fun...

    Hi Carter .

    Thanks for the kind words.

    As far as I know, italian cutlery don't like such an exotic
    shape for blades other then utilitarian, and even this
    isn't made at the same level as in US.
    I mean : many italian firm like Fox Cutlery makes Kukri-like
    blades for Outdoor or camping (440 stainless ), but
    I'm not able to find any really good example of Kukri blade
    custom made by one of our fine artisans.
    I'm sure they can make, and probably have made, such a blade
    even in artistic steels, but I'm not able to find them just now.

    I would *love* to see (or HAVE!!) a Kukri made by this one . See at the scrimshaw and imagine a Tiger made this way on a Kukri handle with the same pattern-steel of the first one...
