Famous as a military fighting knife, the Kukri is the most commonly used multipurpose knife in the fields and homes of Nepal.
The 312mm hollow ground blade has a thick, ridged spine, measuring 8mm at the shoulder and tapering to a hatchet point. The blade is in excellent condition and very sharp.
The Cho at the base of the blade serves to stop blood, sap or other fluids from running onto the handle and making it slippery. The Cho is also believed to be a symbolic representation of a cows’ foot, a sacred animal to all Hindus.
The hardwood hilt has a steel bolster. The grip flares to a broad oval at the base allowing the user a very good grip. The grip has some mild wear to the carved ridges and pommel but is in overall excellent condition. The blade is firm in the hilt.
The wooden, leather covered scabbard is in good condition but lacks the Karda and Chakmak.
This is a very nice and good quality Nepalese Kukri dating to the first half of the 20th Century.
