More khukri love: informative

I live and breath good steel – blade lengths, 10.5″ hardness at edge, 57-61 r, middle is 45-50 and spine is around 30 r – handmade, no single one is identical, though they are similar – 5160 jeep spring steel- ex ghurka khukri house manufacture – the Ghurka Service #1, almost unbreakable and amazing as a bushcraft blade/machete/zombie killing machine.

My opinion, based on extremely extensive testing, these and two other nepalese brands are the best when it comes to khukris- hands down. I have never had a single one of the following brands break, not once! And I am beyond harsh testing.

In order of my choices-

Ex Ghurka Khukri House – Ghurka Service #1 10.5″ blade. (Between this and the sirupate, its a difficult choice, for my go bag, but one always sits in cars/trucks/gobags)

Himalayan Imports – Ang Kola  12″ blade (a work of art, that is almost unbreakable!)

GK&Co.  – Sirupate 14″ blade

If you want KLB, KLK or KLS (khukri like blades/knives/swords) buy murikan, if you want truly well made, artistically individual blades- buy from one of the above only.

Free the mind and the body will follow

His current role in his community is as an organizer of sorts and a preacher of community solidarity and agorism. He also runs Liberty Practical Training, a self defense school specializing in the practical applications of defensive approaches versus the theoretical. As an agorist, voluntaryist and atheist his life is seen as crazy and wild by many, though once they get to know him most realize he is a bluntly honest individual who will give you the shirt off his back if he believes it is necessary to help you. Very simple, "That which is voluntary between all individuals involved is always right, if it is not voluntary, it is always wrong."
