    This is going on the auction block tomorrow:



    I was tempted to try my luck, but the opening bid of €1,500 was just a little too rich for my blood.
    If you're interested in adding a gold-mounted royal kothimora to your collection, send me a PT and I'll give you a heads-up on the auction location.

William J. Kirkpatrick, London, 1811

    Here's another recent auction item.

    The opening bid on this was low enough that I could at least afford to throw some money at it. Unfortunately, the winning bid was considerably higher.

    The original version of the HI Foxy Folly is still my favorite modern khukuri.
