Title Turkish infantry NCO's side arm
Nationality Turkish
Period c 1900
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Made by Horster of Solingen, this is a classic export number of the period. Interestingly, the maker's details appear both in German and Arabic script at the forte of the blade, along with a religious exhortation in a small panel in the middle of the blade. The scabbard is iron, as is the hilt, and both have much of their original finish.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the kukri arrived today safe and sound, many thanks for sending it so quickly. I'm more than pleased with this kukri, I'm so glad I spotted it on your website as I don't think I've ever seen another one like it for sale anywhere.

Once again many thanks and I hope to do business with you again in the future.

It got here this morning, presumably delayed by the holidays. It is perfect, indeed better than I was expecting.
