ON HOLD FOR CUSTOMER ### NEW LISTING 13/11/15 ### VICTORIAN CLASSIC MILITARY SIRUPATE KUKRI WITH ORIGINAL SHEATH.
Some usage wear to back of sheath with one edge repair but otherwise reasonably nice condition and kukri overall has some staining to the blade but otherwise nice original condition and blade rock solid.
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 kukri has a nicely crafted and balanced blade, slightly longer and heavier than the usual which measured in a straight is about 34 cm long.
Has the short smaller hilt length of the Victorian pattern of kukris about 10.5 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!
Chakmaks blades only.Although they appear to be of the correct vintage would say, not unusually, that these are replacements.
The blade 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.
