Yes, you might have to wait for an unpaid volunteer to sign in to approve your post though.. :roll:

But as ive now done that I suggest you post pics again in this forum rather than the for sale forum... :wink:

Cheers,
Spiral

Post subject: My Grandad's old Kukri
Post details
Hi All,

My Grandad was in Singapore and India during ww2 and he used to tell me a story about a Kukri he brought back and gave to his brother. My Grandad died a few years ago and never got to show me the knife as his brother lives a long way away. I recently went to see my great uncle who is now in his 80's and asked him about the knife. He said my Grandad brought two knives back from the war to England. I always thought it was two Gurka knives but my great uncle said one was a stiletto knife with a jewelled handle and the other was the Kukri. He got first choice which one he would like and picked the Kukri and my Grandad gave the other knife to his cousin. The cousin died a good few years ago and there was no trace of the second knife in his house but my great uncle had kept his knife in the loft. When I asked about the knife my great uncle got it out to show me and then said I could have it. It was amazing to finally see the knife my Grandad had often talked about and then to be given it as a gift was incredible, especially as my Grandad is no longer around. I wondered if anybody could help me identify the origins of the knife if I posted some pictures?

I couldn't see any markings on the blade itself and the sheath, which isn't in the best condition now, seem to be made of wood possibly wrapped in something?

Any info on the knife I would be very interested to hear.

Thanks,

Geoff

Thanks. I don't need instant gratification though. I was only asking as maybe I'd done something wrong
