Back from what was a rather disappointing Antique Arms Fair, with what is left of a Kukri. Usually I manage to find something I like within my price range, sometimes a nice Kukri.... Today I came away with a relic, though at a relic price. No hilt, though the blade looks to be decently forged but of no great quality. The scabbard a genuine one with the pockets for the karda etc and even the tinder pocket, a bonus being the hand made frog. Annoyingly blade and scabbard did not start life together, the blade rattling around a bit loose.
Blade is 11.5 inches long (29.21 cm) and weighing just under 12 ounces (340 grams).

mmm I guess its ww2 at earliest... could easily be 50s or early 60s... that blade size would be more popular then.

Frog looks typical military ersatz type... made localy or by the owner.

Tang is 100% original which is good. :wink:
