picked this knife up somewhere between kashkar and hotan in china, can't remember the name of the town but there was knife shops everywhere

Apparently it's the type the Shepard's used to carry about.

It's hand made, the blade is folded in a similar fashion to the samurai swords of Japan, which is a really cool process to watch (if slightly warm when your already in the desert) the handle is inlaid stones and is engraved by hand. Also got the makers name and the date stamped into the blade. It's also really sharp, as i've just found out

Also bought my father a large stainless steel knife for the kitchen, that's still as sharp as the day i gave it to him











of course that knife never gets used, got a leatherman skeletool that i keep with me / the bike all the time.
