~ Kukri Set In A Leather Scabbard ~
The kukri knife has a dark ebony wooden handle with a small lined pattern etched into the grip and brass fittings.
The kukri (or khukuri) is a heavy, curved knife used as both tool and weapon. It is also a part of the regimental weaponry and heraldry of Gurkha Brigade.
The sheath also holds two smaller knives but unfortunately one of them is missing.
The scabbard is made of decorated black leather covered wood with a chromed steel tip.
~ Dimensions ~
The blade’s length on the khukri is 13 inches (33 cm), measured on the outside curvature and its overall length is 17.32 inches (44 cm) long total, on the curvature.
The straight overall length from the tip to the end of the grip is 16 ½ inches (42 cm).
The small knife length is 4 ½ inches (11.4 cm).
The straight measured length of the kukri in its scabbard is 17 inches (43.3 cm).
The set weighs 720 g.
~ Condition ~
The blade is generally clean but has developed few spots of rust on the edge and is nicked in two places.
The grip remains excellent.
The scabbard is in fair condition with some amount of usage and a crack on the edge side.
As previously said, one of the two small knives is missing. The other one remains in very good condition.
