Hello everyone, I am Carlos from Spain, I am fond of the white arms and I would like to know if this kukri is authentic and if it belongs to WSC, because the markings it carries are erased (unless it is false) I bought it on Ebay a Greek who in the beginning is very well valued, has told me that he caught him in Patras (Greece) from Indian soldiers who fought with the Germans ... he measures 17 "and weighs 599 grams. .a greeting.

Hi,

Its a mk.2 kukri from ww1 with a reshaped hilt and blade.

Genuine piece, genuine marks, nothing to do with wsc though.

The date mark is 1918 or 19, the inspector mark is 25, the II stands for mark 2, and it looks like it was probably made by DHW in India.

Thanks for sharing!

In that condition, it has little value left as a collectable realy, Probably worth 50 GB pounds at very most, if lucky.

But would make a great tool to use in the garden! or camping or to go off to battle with!

Well that means it worth £88 to you! :wink:

Seriously though, its a learning curve, it would customise into a good user kukri, Im sure.

Better luck next time!

But tag your initial appraisal on to those pics and it's now a €225 piece on eBay :lol:

If it sells I'd say he owes you a beer!

mmm As I recall.. you started...Hello everyone, I am Carlos from Spain, I am fond of the white arms [/quote] etc.etc.


Should have been Im Carlos from spain and I want to pick your brains so I can **** over some poor innocent on ebay, who knows as little as me..... You hide behind smoke & mirrors, get caught out then you expect respect?

You wont sell that kukri at that price, its recently re.worked by a moron with an angle grinder , buttcaps missing , a very vandalised kukri , so unless some one in the world, who wants a kukri is even more unlucky,stupid, ignorant & richer than you. its your to keep! . :roll:

For any interested heres Carlos ebay link....

His feedback shows he already ripped someone of this month selling non working equipment.

Buyer beware! Pass the word on. :wink:
