Gurkha Kukri - Request for further information

Post by rankfilm » 11 Apr 2018 20:11

Hello all,

I came across this kukri and was just wondering if it was a legit ww2 blade or a modern(ish) piece.

Thanks in advance.

Not modern, but not the military "issue" version.... type worn "everyday" in local costume. Could be older with that blade marking, but pretty much the "commercial" type IMO, of it's day. Seldom found with both side knifes intact, so that's a plus.....certainly still of interest to knife collectors.

Detailed photos would be needed for a better opinion.
