"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."
"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!"
"Who knows a bit about the COLD STEEL TRAIL MASTER model(s)?
I have two, both thirty plus years old.
TM #1 Looks to be a standard Trail Master, rubber handle, synthetic sheath, all original papers, label says:
Hope all is well. Just saw your picture and thought I'd stop by to say "hello." How do you think iKC is coming along? And thanks for keeping active in our groups! I appreciate it, and I know those other members do too.
XBOX 360 but, I haven't played in a while. After getting the Red Rings of Death for the 3rd time I gave up on the XBOX 360. They rushed production on it a couple of years ago so they could match PS3 release date. They still haven't got it right. Played COD Worlld at War, Army of Two, and Gears 2 before that 3rd unit conked out.
