When the thread popped up about this guy McCurdy having his design produced/manufactured in Nepal and shipping from him direct here in PA, well, that was all the prodding I needed to get my first Kukri. I had been wanting a Nepal made Kukri since I first started watching the YT vids of the craftsman manufacturing them. Truly handmade. Ordered Sunday, received today, Wednesday. Can't beat that kind of service. And this thing is beautiful! It's wicked sharp and the balance feels great. I'll cut some stuff with it later. After I get lanyard on it. Decent sheath, too.
