Hello,

Been coming here and some other forums with info about Kukri's quite often for information or just to enjoy pictures of some lovely knives for some time and thought its time to become a member.
I dont have a lot of Kukri's, just a few and mainly military ones, a WW1 MK2, a WW2 MK2 and M43, a K45 marked MK3, a pre WW1 (i guess) long leaf and a pre WW1 8th gr Kukri on the way.
Trying to stick to the military ones although you gents sure show some other gems on here that make me doubt my decision :lol:
One that's very high on my most wanted list, as i'm sure for most of us, is a MK1... maybe one day heh :mrgreen:
Anyway here some pictures, hope you all enjoy..

Hello rvr37

Welcome to the forum, you'll find some great folks here with years of experience and knowledge.

A nice collection of military kukri's there, well done! You'll find them quite addictive...

I look forwad to seeing your "pre WW1 8th gr Kukri" when it arrives, sounds good!

Thanks Gents,

The 8th GR is not marked, will post some pictures when possible. Nice long hilt/handle and a much straighter blade than the other ones i have..

Have a great weekend! Regards, Ruben

Goodmorning,

As promised some pictures of the "newest" member of my small Kukri family as obviously seen in between its WW1 MK2 and WW2 MK2 cousins. Nice balance to it, around 706 grams light/heavy and a lovely hilt/grip, well thats what i think anyway :P

i have just received/bought this 2/8th GR Mk1 Kukri made by FW from one of the forum members here, many thanks for that :) in lovely condition!
Weighing 775 grams, about 50 grams more than my unmarked Mk1, she's quite a handfull but very nice! For me these Mk1's are definately my favourites of the Mk pattern Kukri's.

The scabbard/sheath has multiple markings on it, one very clear but the other 2 not, one i didnt even see until i gave the scabbard some ltc.. Also it has a handwritten tekst on the front, The date and broad arrow I marking is familiar (more or less) but any info about the other markings on the scabbard would be very appreciated!

Thank you for the large photos in the links. I believe I now am able to identify some of the same markings on my much more lightly stamped Mk I scabbard's frog.
