Nepalese 19th Century Gurkha Kukri

old-antique-kukri-3

An early example of a Nepalese 19th Century Gurkha Kukri.  The earlier blades tend to be slimmer and longer than the later, more wider kukris that you find in the 20th Century.  This is not a tourist kukri which is the type of kukri that tends to be most prevalent in the market nowadays.  This kukri was made for use and not just decoration.

Hardwood grip and brass inlay to the blade

There is some decorative brass inlay to the blade forte that lifts the overall quality of the kukri as many examples have a simple, plain blade.  With carved hardwood grip inset with white metal discs.  No scabbard.  In good overall condition with some commensurate age wear to the grip..  Blade length is 14 inches (18.5 inches overall).
