Heavy nickel silver butt cap, full width tang, hardwood slab grips.
Single fullered blade marked "Holtzapffel&Co London"
Blade has been sharpened, and has old staining, lighting pitting and light rust to both sides. Would benefit from some gentle cleaning.

Housed in its original thick leather sheath with a later leather frog for belt carry.
In kukri collecting terms this is a very rare piece, and one for the serious collector.
