    VICTORIAN FINEST QUALITY SIRUPATE "BLADE OF GRASS" KUKRI WITH RARE GOLD INLAID ARMOURERS BLADE MARKS IN ITS ORIGINAL SHEATH
    Overall really nice condition especially considering its age.
    This a rare item gold with inlaid blade armourers marks on one side of the blade ( the largest mark by the handle and a smaller mark by the bend in the blade. )These are not decoration because of their position and design but also they are on one side of the blade only and nowhere else anywhere on the blade.I have spoken to a collector / dealer who told me that he has handled a kukri with gold inlaid blade armourers marks only once before. Not totally certain this is gold but this has the colour of gold rather than another metal such as brass. We could do a gold test but this of course could damage the marks
    The wooden handle is of a finely crafted decoration with very fine small studs overall for a better grip.
    Slim long lean ( Sirupate Blade Of Grass) pattern of blade about 29 cm long measured in a straight line and about 5.1 cm at its widest Has the short smaller width hilt typical of the Victorian pattern of kukris about 10 cm in length
    The kukri has a nicely crafted and balanced blade, with deep bifullers along the short back edge which acts like an H girder to give added strength to the blade.Also reflecting the quality of manufacture has a full tang peaned over at the decorated metal pommel
    Another quality feature on the blade is the fine and sharp needle point kaudi or notch near the hilt
    Comes complete with its original wood and leather quality sheath with an unusually large purse on the back.
    The Chakmaks ( and a wooden peg) would say,not unusually, are certainly replacements.
    Overall really nice condition especially considering its age.
    These classic Victorian Sirupate, especially of this quality are a rare item on the collectors market.
