They would have been Karda & chakmak. Ones of such sizes are quite common on old kukris. The 3rd item could be another karda, but often on kukris one finds a whittled piece of timber as well, used for cleaning food from ones teeth, on 2 other occasions Ive found small hand made scissors. But unless the shape in the leather gives the answer at the time being it would be just guesswork.

Thanks.
It would be great to find a pair but I fear that might be a little hopeful. I might have to talk nicely to Gene he made such a great job of his Ang Khola's K&C.

It would be good to put all three together for comparison. Would you be prepared to bring yours Paul?


Sure thing, if I make it up there I'll bring it along, would be great to compare them in hand. Might bring my ivory handled one too, just to see how close or otherwise it is to the Fisher kukri. Fingers crossed that I can get the day pass! :lol:

Some of the Karda/Chakmak I acquired from Spandau Militaria, have similar lines scribed on the end of the butts....

These are all Chakmak. The longest is 5 1/8", the shortest, 4 1/8". The one with the wire repair has a distinctive b on the handle.
