Two more Kukri blades for handles.

I always get confused with the spelling of kukri and have to look it up every time! Apparently khukuri and khukri seem to be acceptable as well!

So, I have two more blades here ready for handles, from two different people.



The shiney blade is an unused Tora Havildar kukri. It's even nicer then the Indra blade that I handled previously. It's destined for a micarta handle in a dark cloth. 


The dark blade is a heavily patined blade that has had a lot of use. The blade is chipped and the spine is bashed and battered. It has real character to it and I'm planning to leave all the signs of age in place, although it'll need a good sharpen as well as a new handle. It's getting a new handle in walnut with copper fittings.
