    Some of these have their own thread on here


    Ive now got the 4 large blades ive been working on up to a usable finish for testing and all with their own scales
    as i was swapping the set of the parang back and forth as they all have the same scale profile and with different spacer liners get the same basic size 8)


    I have also tweaked and blended the grinds on them which is a breeze on the 14" wheel :D I got recently


    the Machete has a full 18" blade in the 2.5mm CS80


    the Khukuri is shorter @ 14" blade BUT comes in at approx 1kg in weight in the 8.5mm 52100
    Golok and parang n the middle in 4.8mm 75CR1

    the parang and Golok take a pair of 3mm Kydex spacer liners the Khukuri a pair of 1.5mm and the Machete a set of both to give similar handle width

    No doubt someone will be along to tell you that nothing larger than a 4" blade is ever needed :)

    Great looking tools BTW
