Sorry, I don’t trust ANY blades coming out of Pakistan. Too many issues to bring up in a short response post.
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher. ~Morihei Ueshiba
Nah, kiridashi is a traditional Japanese style of tool knife. That just looks like a modern tacticool variation.
"There's no grays, only white that's got grubby. I'm surprised you don't know that. And sin, young man, is when you treat people like things. Including yourself. That's what sin is." — Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum
Pakistan has a long history of metal working and enough technology to build/maintain nuclear weapons, etc., but for the past couple of decades they have held up the bottom end of the knife market. Carbon steel and wood/horn/bone handles is not rocket science. Damascus is an iffy thing. Purdy, but will it hold up? The right company should be able to make a quality product at a good price. If they can match Windlass they would be doing good. If they could match Condor they would be doing good but they would have to be doing niche designs and beat Condors price by a little.
I don't doubt there are great makers in Pakistan, but to make money on the high end stuff they would have to export to the richer countries which means building a name for their company or working for an established American company to build their brand name. KOA has been marketing Devil's Edge for some time, but judging by the number of seconds they sell (as seconds) Devil's Edge has a long way to go.
I have been watching some Musso bowies on ebay, but with prices from 20 bucks to 350 bucks I need to see some reviews and see somebody build a reputation.
ardhanari: The end result was the best tasting wine/cider I have ever had

ardhanari: A baloon is a good way to let the carbon dioxide increase without bursting the container, but I made my own burper. You can buy them online, and I dont wanna explain how I made mine hahha, it was an annoying process

ardhanari: I added more sugar and activated yeast, and let it sit in plastic containers i sterilized with bleach water , and let dry naturally

ardhanari: I used crab apples cause it grows in a relatives yard and she never uses them. I filled a giant pot with them, cut in hald, with a bunch of sugar. I boiled them on low for a few hours with my spices of choice. When done, I strained them and juiced the pulp

ardhanari: And it was personal

ardhanari: I might try make more, but its such a sempriniin hassle it turns out lol. I made sooooo many dishes that were so hard to clean, but that first batch was worth it

Sullivan: Where’s a good recipe to get me started online, do you have a recommendation? Or better yet a personal recipe?

Sullivan: Maybe I’ll learn to make some Cider and give The VVitch a Halloween re-watch.
Sept 30, 2020 4:45:24 GMT
Sullivan: Damn, I love Halloween/Thanksgiving time.

Sullivan: You’re killing me, here. Apple Pie is a top 2 or 3 dessert, and we’re in the season.
Sept 30, 2020 4:44:25 GMT
ardhanari: Added cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, maple syrup, and what not to give it an apple pie flavour

Sept 21, 2020 4:31:04 GMT
