Got this thing today; I know they've been discussed before, but I cannot remember if any had these markings? Cossipore 1920 etc I fiddled with the last photo, so you can see the position of the markings a bit clearer.

Nice one Dave!

Everyone Ive seen is marked for cossipore arsenal, most 1927 a few 1921 or 1926 Seen one scabbard dated 1919 though....

Some of them are the most efficient deep cutting kukri or similar knives Ive ever handled...

Take saplings down like a chainsaw...

It would seem that I wasn't looking closely enough at the others I've seen, to have missed the markings, that wouldn't surprise me as I think these things are as ugly as sin! Still, it's making a good restoration project, ideal for trying out some new techniques.

I've done the 'repaired some time in the past, with whatever wood was available' job on the thing. I picked up a piece of wood on the beach and though, "that'll do".
