Very pleased with the golok and service. This is my first experience with a golok or any other similar design, and so far I'm well pleased. Arrived with a grease coating, removed with lighter fluid, temper lines in evidence. Being carbon steel, a patina is expected and admired. Keep properly oiled. Very sharp, which I improved on easily with my ceramics and strop. Maintains an edge well, in my limited experience thus far . Grip is comfortable in my hands with gobs of available space, and no hot spots. Lanyards are required with this type of tool in my opinion, and lanyard holes are available fore and aft. Well designed leather sheath is provided, perhaps a kydex offering might be in order, or a custom version, to your design. I'd be interested what a 14-16" version would feel like!
