An impressive antique kukri. Likely dating to the last quarter of the 19th century.

This example with a curved 13.75 inch blade with kaudi and twin spine fullers. The blade has a layer of old grease and light rust, but no visible corrosion. The blade maintains a keen edge, with signs of sharpening but no edge knocks.

The hardwood grip in generally good condition, no movement between blade and hilt.  No visible cracks, the central ring, with an elongated band of floral decoration below. Some minor chips to the pommel/heel of the grip. The grip being measuring 3.5 inches long. 

17.25 inches overall.

Housed in a leather covered wooden scabbard. The rear pouch is present, but has begun to seperate from the main body. Original karda and chakmak present, the latter with attractive domed chequered butt.

A very good, complete example of a late 19thC kukri, which will clean up very nicely.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
