Vintage Gurkha Kukri Khukuri Nepalese Gurkha Knife 12.5 with Hand Made Sheath of Red Felt and Incused / Chased Light Metal Onlay. (20.3 cm) long, whole knife with the handle is 12 (30.4 cm) long. The item weighs 14 oz (380 g).
The knife itself is a great Kukri, but the sheath absolutely magnificent and is worth of separate consideration. It is made of red felt covered with the striken/incused onlay that is made of very light and thin metal and features two peacocks (front and back) in the bottom, a deer in the middle and some bird nested on two crossed Kukri knives on top of the front part. This Khukuri knife, as it traditionally is supposed to, has two little utility knives, Karda and Chakmak, whose handles are made of some horn material.
A feast for a collector of authentic edged weapons. No specific mark, only a traditional for Nepalese Kukris star.
