This is a dha (the Burmese word for knife). The upswept curve to the blade is uniquely Burmese. Purchased from a dealer in Yangon, Burma, this hand forged carbon steel chopper is made to use. This knife measures in at 15 1/4″. I guarantee you won’t find these anywhere else outside Burma; I personally flew this knife out in my baggage!

The blade is 9 3/4″ long and a solid 3/16″ thick all the way along the spine, making it an effective chopper. The balance point is 3.5″ in front of the bolster.

The steel bolster is 1 1/8″ long, and the thick bamboo handle is 4.5″ long. I’ve never seen a bamboo handle on a chopper anywhere else in the world, but this type of South Asian bamboo is extremely dense and tough.

The handle allows for a comfortable grip, even for those with larger hands.

This dha’s blade widens to 2 13/16″ near the tip, and it weighs about 1 lb 1.3 oz. I don’t know if and when I’ll ever be able to get another one of these! $115 including worldwide shipping.
