    Collecting Blades and other items...

    I'm posting this here because it doesn't really fit in the knife section(may be a bit off topic)

    I want to expand my collection to more practical (real) knives and swords. So far the ones I have now are unsharpened stainless steel.

    I saw on another forum post that Himalayan Imports / BirGorkha Khukuri (Nepal) was a good place to look for handsome, practical, and inexpensive knives and swords. Is that true? If so, I like their Tibetan sword: Himalayan Imports SWORDS (katana, tarwar, tulwar)

    I also saw these two sites on the same post: PAUL CHEN 2008 PRACTICAL TAI CHI SWORD SERIES

    Cheness Cutlery - Manufacturer of Fully Functional, live carbon steel, Japanese Katana Swords and accessories.

    As for knives, How are the Ka-bars? Any good? Other recommedations welcome.
    If anti-gun legislators truly believed that guns kill people, the guns would be on the witness stand and the assailent would be holding the "Exhibit A" sign.

    Strongly suggest that you search Ebay first before you spend top dollar for any import cutlery.
    Search All Of Ebay for hand-forged kukri or katana or whatever.
    Lots of times stuff is listed at almost giveaway prices.

    Try just going to ebay.com and type khukri into the search box.

    Well, Marines love the Ka-bar, still see many grunts carryin em around here, been used for over 100 years, pretty reliable, and not too expensive, you can usually find one for under 50 bucks.

    I'm partial to Ontario knife works and cold steel knives myself. CKRT and Benchmade make some good stuff too.

    Thanks.

    BTW: Are the swords listed above real? (Real=sharpened carbon steel)
