I was Given a Khukuri by a nepalese guy ( former Ghurka ) at Christmas.
Thought you chaps would like a look see.
Its a very sharp thing, looks like it was made on a small scale forge, There is evidence of laminating the metals. The handle is the usual buffalo horn everythinfg you would expect from a Khukuri really, plus some nice engraving and a plaque with the guy that gave me on a presented by piece of scroll work.
Happy New year all.

Beautiful blade! I'd be proud to carry it.

Might I make one small suggestion? When taking close-up pictures, try to move back just a tad, then enlarge the photo on your computer and crop it. This will allow you to see detail nice and sharp. :)

I don't think I'd be dragging that beauty to the woodlot.
From the look of the smudges on the blade bevel it looks like someone may already have. Decoration is fine and all but if I can not take it to the wood lot (if I have to) then the thing is just ugly. It looks like a very nice knife.

Thanks Guys,
Pfc Wilson. Yes they are still with us one recently got killed in Afghanistan. They are a great bunch of blokes, completely fearless and quite devoted to Britain and the Queen. More than a lot of us Brits are these days. Very loyal , humble guys.

I bought one in the 70's to support the Gurka Pension Appeal . It's one of my favourite knives. It was quite roughly finished when I bought it. I've since made it look presentable .
