Another 3fer. I like that news in the morning.
I spent my youth and teenage years in the area of the Lapeer County Deputy shooting. May the deputy recover to return to work.

I have long wanted to have a Kukri. Not some “Made in China” piece of lookalike shit, and not even some custom creation from an American Knifemaker, and not particularly needed to be “new”. I want a “Kukri”, made originally for the military, and authentic. I expect that I will go to my grave without one, but the desire is there.

I always wondered what the two little knives tucked into the back of the scabbard were for. They are poorly balanced for throwing and one was dull as could be. I figured mine must be unique and the maker had some left over metal…
I am now glad I did not try to put an edge on the blade. Maybe mine is authentic, I know it was not made in China, but I don’t know for sure it was made in Nepal.

From the article.

Most Kukri feature two little knives attached at the back of the sheath held either in a built-in pocket or a leather purse is the complete set. The small sharp knife is a Karda, it serves as a small cutting knife. The other knife is called a Chakmak. It is blunt on both sides and it works like a knife sharpener when one does not have a sharpening stone rubbing both sides of a kukri. This Chakmak when stroked against a lime stone created sparks to start fire also.”


Another 3 get ventilated!


The Trifecta DRT Gods have smiled upon us this week. WW maybe throwing a party of some sort. Almost like the Good Old days of yore, before the news feeds were eat up with Bat Flu, Orange Man Bad, and Everything is RAAYYYCISSS!

Slice, Dice, and get all Stabby. The Gurkhas AND the Kurki are Bad Ass!

The 2nd A is the only reason that the USA has lasted as long as it has. When that is gone, thus goes our Republic.
