A high quality, WW2 officers grade private purchase ivory hilted kukri.
This variation is the hardest of the private purchase variants to find, and something of a rarity in the kukri collecting field.
This particular example was brought home by a USAF Hump Pilot.
Likely produced in Darjeeling, which seems to be the manufactureing hub for these well made private purchase kukris.
12.5 inch blade in very good condition, still in a layer of original grease.
These examples were made without a bolster.
17 inches overall.
Slab grips held in place with copper rivets. The butt capped with a nickel silver pommel plate.
Housed in a black leather scabbard complete with frog.
Chakmak an Karda also ivory hilted and both maker marked, and are housed in thier compartment into the rear of the scabbard.
Part of a small collection of good quility kukris being listed over the coming months.
Due to the composition of the hilt, this kukri cannot be shipped outside of the EU.
Strictly over 18's only.
