VICTORIAN CLASSIC MILITARY SIRUPATE KUKRI WITH SHEATH, CHAKMAKS, AND AN INDIAN SILVER 1 ANNA COIN DATED 1944
Overall nice condition.
This really is the classic pre WW1 military kukri of some age with its typical Victorian military long heavy and slim Sirupate ( Blade Of Grass) which are a relatively long and lean type of blade.The blade has the usual for this type and age of kukri a needle point kaudi or notch near the hilt
The kukri has a nicely crafted and balanced blade, slightly longer and heavier than the usuual which measured in a straight is about 34.5 cm long.
Has the short smaller hilt length of the Victorian pattern of kukris about 10.3 cm.The hilt is also the typical early military kukri pattern with part tang, steel bolster and plain solid hardwood grip.
Must have frightened the wits out of Britains Victorian enemies!
With silver Indian dated 1944 one Anna pushed in the pocket at the back.
Some pitting to the two small Chakmaks blades only.Although they appear to be of the correct vintage would say, not unusually, that these are replacements.
Vintage sheath with its original brass chape, and the nice clean blade is a nice tight fit in the sheath, however would say that although it looks perfect for this kukri the blade tip comes on the inside to the brass chape at the bottom of the kukri, and again, which is not unusual would say the sheath is a replacement of the original.
The military frog and coin would say are recent additions.
Some original small usage chips to the wood of the pommell.
The blades have a protective grease covering which we have taken off for the photos and put back.
Otherwise the clean blade is a nice tight fit in the sheath, and overall both kukri and sheath are in nice condition.
