I am trying to get some information or history on this kurki. This kurki was given to me with no knowledge of its where abouts or how it came into my family. The 2 small sharpening tools have bone handles and the main handle is ivory/bone(not 100% sure). The sheath is a mix of tin and some brass. I am more curious on the engravings and the many cultures that the blade/shelth shows. If more pictures are needed/wanted on any part of the knife/Shelth just ask. I am looking for any knowledge or insight anyone that reads this has. Please and thank you.

Hi there, sorry no one answered your question...

Its a modern tourist kukri, as often sold in Thamel, its to be hung on the wall rather than used.
