Another beautiful kukri
This is the second of two kukris that I received today. Like every other kukri in my possession from Nepal, this blade is excellent. I've given a couple to a friend and grandson. My grandson will get a couple more before I order again. Nepalese craftsmen are among the best in the world. Kukris are fast becoming my favorite blades. Thank you.

Kukri has arrived
Thank you for your answer.
Yesterday late afternoon the khukuri has arrived. All went good. It is on time.
The knife has a good blade geometry for chopping, cutting as well as slising, is well made, strong, nice looking and relatively light weight. A piece of Gurkha tradition from Nepal in a new form and with extended function. Perfect for my purpose of use.
I am very pleased to have received such a great work of art from a master knife maker. Please transmit my congratulations to him!
But also the sheath maker did a very good job. Please, let him also know, that I congratulate and appreciate his great work!
Wish you all the best.

My favorite knife for almost everything
I cannot say enough good about this knife. It chops better than any hand axe / tomahawk, it cuts brush better than any machete. It takes so little effort to swing that I am still going long after everyone else has worn themselves out. Everything about its design is a delight. It is balanced, the hook of the blade matches the angle of my wrist perfectly (When I point the blade forward, the point is in line with my extended arm.) It isn't bulky, but has good heft. It isn't too large, but I am confident I can cut whatever I need to cut. I have heard that if you can only have one knife you want it to be a khukuri. Well, if you can only have one khukuri you want it to be the Tri Angkhola. It replaced several other knives and axes. I am actually kind of thankful I didn't have this when I was younger or I wouldn't have learned to use any number of other, inferior tools. If something ever happens to the one I have now, I will certainly get another. It is now something I cannot do without.

I received the Kukri's today! They were in great shape and I appreciate the craftsmanship. I think that in hindsight, I'd have probably purchased an other one besides the PanaPlus. Tell Barun his craftsmanship is outstanding..
One small issue however is that the kydex scabbard for the Barun Tri doesn't fit. It is the right length, but has an incorrect angle and won't fit the kukri. I cannot get it sheathed.
How should we resolve this? Should I send it back?

The Barun Tri Angkola pictures on the site really intrigued me, the beautiful chirra and extra wide edge combined with a 13.5" blade and only 21.8 oz....and still a full 3/8" thick spine! I felt like it had to be an amazing chopper, when it slid out of the package it was more that I had hoped for. Fit and finish were fantastic, very sharp edge and the balance just begged to be used....so I went to an Osage Orange grove and started cutting :) Not long ago a piece of seasoned Osage bent up the edge of one of my Khukuri from another (well respected) Nepali company. I understood because this is extremely hard, dense stuff. I took the Barun Tri to the same limb and started chopping, it bit so very deep into the hardwood! After a dozen hard snap cuts the limb was chopped and all my edge had to show was a single, very tiny (as in I had to shine a light on it to see) bend maybe 1/8" long.
Thank you KHHI for this Khukuri, it sings in the hand and I am grateful to own it. You have a customer for life and I will share my review!
