Title Gurkha kukri
Nationality Indian
Period 1943
Sold

This is a locally made issue piece, with a broad arrow punched above the 1943 date at the forte of the blade - it is quite uncommon to find WW2 issue pieces that are dated. The top of the scabbard has been modified to fit directly onto a Sam Brown or Webb belt, indicating possible officer use.

The hilt is rosewood with iron mounts. The scabbard is wood bound with calf leather.
