A good example of a Nepalese Bone-handled Kukri from the early 20th Century. With decorated and incised pommel and well carved bone handle. The kukri is a Nepalese knife that exhibits an inwardly curved edge and is used as both a tool and a weapon. It is regarded as a basic utility knife of the Nepalese people and is the primary edged weapon of the Nepalese Army, the Royal Gurkha Rifles and of all Gurkha regiments throughout the world. There are many famous tales of Gurkha soldiers using the kukri as their primary weapon of choice when in close combat.
Well tempered blade on Gurkha Kukri
The blade is well tempered and the kukri comes complete with its original decorated leather scabbard. The kukri is in good condition throughout commensurate with its age - some wear and minor repair to scabbard. A nice and original addition to a collection of antique Gurkha kukris. Blade length is 11 inches (14.5 inches overall).
