Ha - vindicated! Gotta love those double-headed coins! :-D
oops. You were right. the picture with the two kalinga folders and 2 fixed blades ARE Akonuas. The Kalinga fixed blade is next to the Talwar. You flipped the coin correctly.
Ahhh..so it is a Kalinga...I wasn't quite sure when I commented. I obviously spent too much time flipping that coin... :-D That's a great side x side comparison - gives some good scale as to the actual size of the Talwar.
I put the Talwar next to the full size Kalinga. It shows just how large the Talwar is. Holding the Talwar is such an awesome, and odd, experience. I can almost hold the Talwar with two hands on the handle!
the bottom one is a Buck Kalinga. The top two are Buck Kalinga Folders, pro. the top 2 are S30V steel. The Kalingas have been out of production for a while.
The Kalinga below is a Pro model. It is in S30V steel.
That's a sweet pair of Buck Akonua's you there as well John. Your Talwar XL will look great among this group.
So what are the two folders?
DLKG - I did not check on the size. I bought it because of the shape of the blade! when I got it I was truly shocked! (in a good way)
John Smithers, That looks to be a Talwar XL -- nice choice for a first Cold Steel! People just tend not to appreciate the immense size of these knives until they finally hold one. Pretty cool. Enjoy it!
Hi! I just bought my first Cold Steel knife.
Post script to my TRAIL MASTER STAG - BLADE IS marked
MADE IN USA
