Original Nepalese Gurkha Kukri Fighting Knife

In 2003 IMA purchased the contents of Royal Nepalese Arsenal located at the palace of Lagan Silekhana in Katmandu, Nepal. Among other goodies there was a quantity of 19th century military issue Kukri used by the famed and feared Gurkha Regiments of the British Army. In fact; they still train with it today and it is an everyday item for most Nepalese. Here’s something cool: on September 2, 2010 Bishnu Shrestha, a retired Indian Army Gurkha soldier was traveling alone on a passenger train in India when it was attacked by 40 bandits. Armed only with his Kukri he killed three and wounded eight more and drove off the rest. Anyway; this is the real deal that served for a very long time. It’s the earlier, 19th century long leaf design that is larger than the later versions and has certainly “seen the elephant”. The blade is 12-1/2” long, the spine is 11/64” wide where it meets the bolster and the grip is 4-1/8” long (overall length is about 16-1/4”). The metal is mixed gray and darker patina, the edge is not dinged or chipped and the handle is sound and solid. There are some markings on the butt but they seem to be Nepali. A great opportunity to own a real piece of history and, to have on hand should some hash need settling.
