Just wanted to let you know the knives arrived yesterday and are magnificent, the workman ship of your kami’s is something to be very proud of. Also many thanks for the complimentary paper knife, which has already come in useful. The blades are all finished as requested, with white metal. The King Prithivi is a massive blade but lighter than the 3 Chirra Beast I already have by some 30g - it certainly a menacing looking blade. All are well balanced and great in the hand, I plan to test them later today with my Son when it’s a little cooler and the rain stops.
Only two minor things I will mention, but these do not detract from how pleased I am with the selection. The officer handle is a little small both in length and width for my hands, I should have asked for it to be made a little longer and thicker if that would have been possible. The other thing is very minor, two of the four sheathes came without a lanyard loop but this is not an issue at all, I know it was an additional request to have these included but it doesn’t change how amazing the knives I have are.
I received my King Prithivi khukuri today and it is stunning. I am attaching a picture and share it's glory with you. Please let me know how to send the damaged one back.
