PRICE REDUCED WAS £85 NOW £79 ### NEW LISTING ### 14/7/16 WW2 QUALITY MILITARY KUKRI STAMPED... "TEMPERED STEEL MADE IN INDIA" ...SHEATH, BELT FROG, & LARGE SINGLE COMPANION KNIFE" .
Overall very nice original condition.
The "TEMPERED STEEL MADE IN INDIA" ...stamp according to one source dates from around 1945 / 1946 but there is one with the same stamp for sale on the internet dated 1943.
Thick heavy military blade about 30.5 cm in length measured in a straight line not on the curve. Odd slight marks and stining to blade but overll very nice clean condition.
There is an unusually large single chakmak pushed down the frog at the back of the kukri, which has some light pitting overall to the blade. Not designed for it but we are sure this is an original and contemporary addition and always seems to have been with this kukri.
Nice horn handle with double rivets to the tang covered with decoration and bolted at the pommel. Not sure whether this kukri originally had a pommel cap or not?
Quality made sheath.The belt loops are comparatively thin leather which would account for why one of the metal buckles is missing but the leather loop remaining has been turned over and fastened in place to form a belt loop to match the other.
Presumably a private or unit purchase from WW2 and part of a small vintage collection of kukris originally collected in India we will be selling.
