Hi guys have a unusual I think square nut type Kukri to ask about ,it has a 14 rather straight blade 18 inch overall,really nice fullers and kaudi ,unusual grip with the square nut ,handle looks kinda Afghan shape and wood colour ,?.760 Grams ,feels amazing in the hand ,really dark patina on the blade ,has been there and seen it I think has a few chips on the blade but just adds to the character I think,
Any views or opinions from you guys
Thanx
Highlander

You have a belter there.
These square nut variety have been discussed before. I first saw one at the Gurkha museum. It was described as a "field repair" I think Chris has a couple of these too.
I picked up my one awhile ago from a poorly photographed auction down in Truro.

These are not common place and are a rarity. They seem to be quite diverse in their details so may have been a forerunner of the Mkl.
Fabulous find many thanks for posting your latest kukri.
Hopefully Chris and Krishna will add their considerable knowledge and some photos of thiers.

Kind regards
Captain

It be one of mine; I found it a couple of years back at the War'n Peace Show, Kent,UK.
Vitals:
19oz
18" Overall Length
13 3/4" Blade
3/8" Blade Width
2 1/4" Belly

It is actually one of my favorites, despite the condition. It would appear to have a nick in the blade is about the same place as yours!
maybe I'll do a photo of how it looks now.....

Just cleaned it a bit and then left it alone; photos! There's quite a crank in the handle and a definite 'hollow back', so I've filed this as an Ang-khola.

There is an armoury display in India, where most kukri display such a nut.

I guess it was a production method in some areas of India at that ere.


Occasionally the same result may result from modification or repair.
