Is that goatskin wrap on the sheath? Water buffalo? I can't tell the difference.
The khukuri GGK sent me (balanced 11" goatskin) is brown in color - not mottled, not camo, not orange, not black. I love it. Is it the color of the leather that makes it ganjawal? Or quality of leather? Or markings on the leather? Or the style?
I was looking at doing a custom scabbard on Purna's site (along with a custom khukuri), but I can't tell the difference. Browsing tells me "ganjawal" is a village, not a type of leather or style or technique.
I guess I can tell him "use the same wrap as the 11" balanced". But I'd like some markings on it, similar to what I've seen labeled as "ganjawal" on their higher end offerings.
Oh damn. That's just amazing. A literal cross guard. I need one
It comes from the James Keating Crossada, I am sure people have probably made it before him at some point too(Knives have been around along time and so have threaded pieces like pommels for example) but never made it his own thing the way he did.

carbon: Sharpened one of my C/S H&H swords for the first time using an adjustable fixture I made. Went from a little better than butter knife to an even, polished, paper slicing edge. It's a slow process but it does work.
