Every once in a while Therion runs into a Paul-Hogan-crocodile-hunter-wannabe who pulls out a large bowie or some similar knife he thinks is impressive. Therion usually responds with this humongous two and a half foot long choora / Khyber knife on steroids. "Now THIS is a knife, punk!"

Made in north western Pakistan or eastern Afghanistan in the mid 1900's. Blade is 3/16" thick at the spine. An impressively heavy piece, most likely made for export to impress gringos like us.
