OK ... This "how to" was brought about due to a discussion between Steel Bonnet, PD and myself .
When I first decided to start customizing action figures (about 4 years ago) there were a few things / topics that I wanted to work on besides , starwars , spetsnaz , cossacks and mongols one of them was Ghurkas .
My idea was to do various bashes of Ghurkas in different theaters and times .
As you can tell , I have not finished one yet even though I have stockpiled ebough parts and sculpts for god knows how many Ghurkas .
(not trying to brag ...Just telling it like it is )
The first photo is of 2 mods and a stock Khukri from here : http://www.gijoeelite.com/f_category...rPart=GIEW-07G
The knife with the Strider type handle was made from a Cotwald Kuhkri and the one with the Modern handle was made from a 21c Khukri .
If you can get your hands on a 21c one ...DO NOT MODIFY IT ! It is perfect .
The idea behind these mods was for some modern Ghurka Rifles in Afghanistan projects . I searched around on the wed and found that several modern knife manufacturers made/make their own version of the Ghurka Kuhkri knife .
Ramble ramble ramble .
