Well I finally got one and this is one of a number of kukri that I picked up recently. Good start to 2018. It has the Co and I /\ C with what thin is 21. Does not seem to have the date like 1915 on it. I have seen this stamp arrangement before.

Tip to butt it is 45.5 cm

Blade is 34.5 cm

Hilt is 11.0

Weight is 906 grams.

It is a solid kukri with sign of use. Has the classic full tang with nut. It has some damage to the wooden hilt that is not in these photos.

Looks like Cossipore 1915 production to me.

Think i wright in saying this was the last style of the Mk1s made in 1915.
They seem to have a chunky feel and are quite heavy .
Lovely well made kukri .
