Samo it looks like we forumites from colder climes are making you into an 'artic knife knut'...Moras (beautiful knives), Nordic axes, next on the list, Puukkos and Ulus!
This learning goes both ways as well. Thank you Samo for introducing me to knives from warmer climates. They are facinating to us 'winter people'. I love the golok, Keris and Malaysian native knives which are unique, appealing to the eye and highly functional.
Vox, did "The Old Fart" do well in the race? LOL
