I do, and it's awesome.

This thing is beefy! It's an Afghan gripper model.
Hand made out of carbon steel in Nepal by EGKH (Ex-Gurkha Kukri House).
Razor sharp, I've used it to easily slice through arm thick tree branches with only a few hacks.
Works perfectly to baton wood too.

The sheathe is made of wood covered in hardened hide, not too crazy about it, but it serves it's purpose I guess.
The two accessory knives are the Karda (small utility knife) and the Chakmak (A piece of steel used for honing the main blade).

I had to add my touch to it, so I cord wrapped the sheathe and added a lanyard.

No pictures, but i can fix that in a few days. I have an old WW2 era Kukri. From the research I've done, its a Mk III from India. Long story short, India was starting to crank them out at the end of WW2, when the war ended. Most of them got boxed up and put into storage and forgotten about till decades later. Years later they were found and sold worldwide.
