kukri....i think i saw one in Makati Cinema Square, use the amorsolo entrance but not the KFC side. enter, then go up the stairs. it's on your right side before you reach jollibee. they sell different kinds of knives and swords. but a kukri is heavy, compared to the curved blades we have locally.
i don't know if it is gurkha or gukrah knife, where can I buy one?
based on the pictures on a mountaineering book, it looks a curved bolo with a wide blunt back. would love to have it to cut bamboo in our backyard.
btw, how do you sharpen a knife? tnx!
gurkha is the name of the people...the knife i think is called kukri...siguro from nepal ;D
but no..i think similarly shaped knives are available here for i personaly have seen quite a few...just can't seem to remember where.
Look for the local distributor of Cold Steel Visit the SOE store at cinema square, or punta kayo gunshow this nov. I'm sure madami dun
My mom bought me a kukri nun sa Nepal ( why , I dont know ), di maganda quality , pwede pang display It's a big knife shaped like a boomerang
Used by gurkha commandos. Those small ferocious dudes na bodyguards ni Prince Bolkiah

started collecting knives when my dad worked at NAIA and he gave me a victorinox and benchmade knife.. then i got hooked and bought spyderco, coldsteel and a friend of mine w/c is a nam veteran gave me another coldsteel and a benchmade knife... i was into mountaineering when i collected those. i still have them on my closet. hehehe

I want a knife set like the one they sell in home TV shopping. The one they use to cut cans with. I'll get that and start running around the house while holding it. Hehe.
hey, DONT buy them! they are not as reliable as you think they are! they are sharp, really sharp as all new knives do... but wait a few uses and it looses all quality endevors it showed in the commercial advertisements... if you do really love to buy kitchen knives, i would personally recommend you to buy WUSTHOF or ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS. i'm using the later and im really satisfied with them if you cook regularly. Here's the catch... quite expensive... cook's knife 7 inches goes for 2k++ upto 5k but it will be worth the investment i guarantee you...

donfacundo, nice the prestige, right. Weight is solid. Thank God for SM for bringing the brands that used to be so expensive. The wusthoff i'm keeping under lock and key since a house guest used the chef's knife for cracking ice!!! and at the same time, placed a full dutch oven on my elba glass top, kainis!
