bought this for 25 bucks. I was directed here while doing some research.

I attached a few pics, is there anything you can tell me about it?

So far, ive concluded for the most part that its a working kukri, as it has some weight/balance/sharpness and feels good in the hand. There is a horn handle (not sure what animal species). Not sure on age or origin although some have said it looks nepalese.

Its a modern buffalo horn handled copy of the sort of kukri issued to various Gurkha employing armies.

It is worth $25 so thats the good news!

Kukris are mid length curved knives used both as a tool and a weapon. They are regimental issue to the famous Gurkha warriors, in whose skilled hands it becomes a frightening weapon. Designed for utilitarian use as well as war, it excels at chopping, cutting and stabbing.
