    VERY INTERESTING LARGE WW2 PATT MK 3 GURKHA MILITARY KUKRI & SHEATH & BELT FROG

    Overall good / very good used condition.

    Copy? Post 1950's Indian Army? or WW2 Sell Off ? This is a very interesting item because of the stampings with "INDIA" and a broad arrow... which I initially assumed meant the kukri was a copy.HOWEVER This has some age to it and is a nice quality manufacture not associated with copies.It came with a collection of kukris all the others being original.Also in the many moons of dealing collecting,writing about, and dealing in militaria I have not found another kukri for sale on the collectors market exactly like this one ...or with these markings... its very unusual to make a one off copy of a kukri !? One suggestion is that this was made for the Gurkhas of the Indian Army.The Indian Army is apparently the third largest army in the world and its a little known fact that far more Gurkhas serve with the Indian Army than the British Army.Certainly the internet could not come up with another and the only rerference to a similar kukri we could find was on a Gurkha Kukri Forum where it mentions that after WW2 there were a lot of spare stocks of original MK 3 Kukris and in the idea that it would make them more saleable were stamped with "INDIA".Can email a link to the forum if of interest.

    This is a large typical Mk 3 military kukri with a blade 31.5 cm blade length measured in a straight line not on the curve.Would as often happens say that the sheath is a replacement although the kukri is a perfect and nice tight fit in the sheath.

    A very nice kukri but as we cant make s definitive description have listed at a very reasonable price.Would look terrific with any WW2 display or worn at a 1940's weekend with a Chindit jungle uniform
