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.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
