The Nepalese Gurhka and American Bowie knives reflect my desire to find traditional weapons that were designed for use and actually were in use by real people in real places when knives were seen as tools to rely on and not for ceremonial or decorative use. While Cold Steel obviously spruced up these traditional knives with fancy furnishings and a choice of steel for the Gurhka knives, they stayed true to their original design and function. They prove that clearly in their Solid Proof DVDs, putting these and all their blades through cutting and stress tests I have not seen anywhere else.
These are great weapons to expand upon the base form and applications of the double weapon Butterfly Knife form, as well as belonging to a fascinating past.
