Here's a nicely made one I'd like to find out a bit more about. It has a lovely sunburst style steel butt cap that I've been after for a while , it also has a serrated style bolster , really nicely cut Kaudi ,big blade 14 inch hollow forged ,has a great feel to it ,610 Grams .
Has a black scabbard and a frog .
Was thinking 1920s pp .
See what you guys think .

Quality piece..

Might be 20s, might also be pre ww1 by a few years as well. Couldn't be 100% certain.

All good apart from the flimsey late or post ww2 frog attached, if it looked right ok, that would be enhacing, but as clearly never for a kukri or scabbard like that seems to detract from such a good kuk to my eye. :wink: But Im like that...

Additions cool if match, if they dont , it detracts..

Nice addition to your collection.
It looks like a very well made, useful kuk. I really like the kaudi design just a little more input but a lovely touch.

Always pleased to see forumites getting on and sharing.
Captain.
