Here is a very pleasing example of the hard to find "tool kit" kukri, which some liken to the Nepalese version of the Swiss army knife.

I shall let the images do the talking, but briefly, I would estimate that this kukri dates from around the early 1900's into the 1920's. The kukri itself has a hard wood grip with well executed grip ring and carving, with minor chips to the pommel edge.The 11.5 inch blade is bright, with twin spine fullers, kaudi notch and a well honed cutting edge.

Total length of the kukri is 15.5 inches.

The scabbard has provision for ten addition implements, nine of which are present, including a chakmak and karda. All of these with horn grips, mostly in good condtion, but some may have small chips/splits but are all firm. I suspect the missing implement is a bamboo pick/pen, which could be an easy replacement. The khissa pouch also present.

The leather covered wooden scabbard is in remarkably good condition, with pleasing tooled decoration, complete with sangli loop and buttons.

The overall condition is very good indeed, and this example would be difficult to improve upon.

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