Post subject:  Help with identifying purchase 6

Would appreciate some help with identifying my recent purchases, interested to know era, military or non-military, private purchase or tourist. I’m not interested in the value as I paid what I paid.

Any other info appreciated as well.

This is all metal, blade is black - believe it’s indian and has a sheath that allows the Kukri to be remove from the side as it’s open half way down the sheath.

I have more photos of this helps.

Many thanks
Scott.

Jodhpur Kukri which are quite rare apparently especially with stamps and scabbard. One was sold here in link above.

For future posts make all your photos 1024 wide - I just can't look at them well when they are massive and only part of the photo fits on my screen.

Many thanks for the extra info.

The blade has a small chip in it, and it shows that the it’s blackened all the way through the metal and not just blued (which is mentioned in the other post), so I assume it’s forged from a specific type of steel.

Also this one only has three digits stamped - I assume they wouldn’t have added a leading zero , the the other post mentions 3 digit numbers.

I will do some more research now I have an idea where to look.

Need to work out how to resize my images , using an iPhone and when adding a file it doesn’t give an option to resize on the forum.

Many thanks,
Scott.

Many thanks again for the info, nice looking Kukri.

I’ve added a close-up of a chip in the edge it looks like the metal of mine is this colour and not blued, is that possible ?

Cheers Scott.

If the steels blue its been burnt on re shapening, but more likely , I hope,,, some past owners wiped cold blue solution over the blade to replicate the original hot blue finish...

The fort guard{FG} marks are quite common, The trident etch extremly rare...
