Three Antique Firearms and

Swords and Antique Weapons


The all steel Kukri measures 47.5cms long in its sheath. Out is it 46.5cms long with a blade length of 36.5cms and a width a little over 6.5cms.
The hilt and bolster are all steel and lightly carved and incised with simple geometric designs throughout.
The blade is very well forged, has crisp lines, a deep drop and a very good sharp cutting edge.
The Karda and Chakmak are actually two identical Karda of very good quality.
Double Karda are quite common amongst many of the better made Kukri.
Its original tinder or flint pouch is also present.
The scabbard is leather over timber and ends in a chiseled steel cap. The leather is very good quality and is expertly stitched.
As is the case with many Kukri of this age, the bottom of the sheath is open due to friction wear on the blades edge.

Of special interest is the double sided letter dated May 1st 1900 which talks about the 5 year delay in getting this gift being one of a pair of Kukri to two individuals. The author also speaks of his time in India and the manufacture point of this Kukri along with further notes that the manufacture centre, (Which is named) is the best makers of Kukri and that they are very real and capable weapons.
