Hi, recently purchased this from auction, i used your forums among other places to identify it so it seemed right to make an account and share some photos. Im a dealer of general antiques especially things with historic or novelty interest and my main passion is militaria. Wooden (plywood) sheath full tang blade sharp still and with signs of use its made to do a job not be pretty. Believe its genuine, a few interesting things, theres a number 8 on the inside of the belt loop and the sheath is marked 21 at the bottom. Pictures of all marks, hope its useful.

Hello Falcs,

It certainly appears to be a genuine "Rail yard" produced kukri from mid WW2, congratulations!

I am sure others will be along presently with more information.

All the best,

Chris

Yes although a couple of these once came with a plaque dedicated to an Indian paratrooper Officer, the term "Emergency railway yard kukri" is probably best. There quite rare.
