"As they say in Italy, Italians were eating with a knife and fork when the French were still eating each other. The Medici family had to bring their Tuscan cooks up there so they could make something edible"
THE SIEGLE KUK BEFORE THE FOLLOWING WORKOUT I HAVE GIVEN this custom in months that followed. 1/4 in. stock in 5160 with micarta. this blade has proven legendary in cutting everything from trash cedar elm to the real tough mesquite & bodark [bois'darc] easily slices paper after chopping for 1 to 2 hr. workouts. at 2 lbs. i do'nt recommend it for hikers going more than 3 or 4 miles but it excells at the chopping workouts many of us enjoy.---dennis
well it looks like a pretty sweet kukri to me,or i guess purists would call it a klo,anyway about 2009 i started out on a boker tactical kukri about 50.00 i think.now i have bought 4 nepal made ones and indian one, two american and a chinese or taiwan.yours sounds like a stout chopper.1/4 inch of the right steel hardened ,tempered right wouldnt be nothing to sneeze at,i wouldnt think.i know some of my khhi"s are almost 1/2 thick.
