Hi

I am new to kukri's, i have previously collected swords. However recently picked up a cheap kukri at an auction. I don't know anything about this one but think it's just a cheap tourist kukri but has some age. Anyone have any ideas what it is our where it could be from. The blade is 11 inches long.

That looks like one of the souvenir Kukris I picked up at the Gurkha Museum in Kathmandu last year.

Hello and a warm welcome to the forum.
This is a kukri in the style of the British service issue MkV or BSI MkV. Judging from the photo and your appraisal I would agree the it is a tourist kukri. As to age? I wouldn't like to guess could be brand Harry spankers or a late 20th C.

Thanks for posting, I would caution you that kukris are extremely addictive, as more the one of us can tell you. Once bitten your smitten.
Welcome to a future kukaholic.

Kind regards
Captain.
