1942 issue kukri questions
Hi, Brand new to this forum and always wanted an example of British issued kukri. I have an opportunity to buy this one but would like an opinion on its authenticity, see attached pics.
Thanks in anticipation

Hi Stringy,

Welcome to the forum.

The kukri is a legitimate MKII kukri. I believe the stamp ATD is for Army Traders Dharan, the II is for MKII, and the 42 is for 1942.

The scabbard is not standard issue though.

Regards

Paul
