    I ordered a customized khukuri from them and found they do completely custom work as well. The customized knife was relatively inexpensive for what it is and the completely custom knife work is dirt cheap.

    I asked for a Nepali take on the Finnish puukko. This is the sketch I received back.

    I plan on using this as the ultimate camp knife. Handle is stacked leather with buffalo horn spacers at the end. Sheath is western style leather.

    Everything's pushed back with the pandemic going on but as long as I survive, I should get a kick ass knife out of this. One of the nice things about Kailash is that they sent pictures of the forging, grinding, and finishing as your knife is made. One of the supremely awesome things is the price. $182 for what is shown above (sans shipping because it is coming from Nepal).

    Sheath's done. I was going to make a joke about sending this to Linos for a kydex sheath (since he's the man) but I think this one will stay in the leather sheath.

    It's a beast. I love it.

    And working from home means I get to wear it around the house today.
