I have an Enfield Kukri that i am interested in selling and hearing anything you can tell me about it.
I got it from an estate auction . There was a number of interesting weapons that dated to late 1800s

Hi
Could you please post a price for your kukri?
I would suggest that you copy the information request into the kukri open forum.

All the best
Captain.

Good question.

Im unsure but im open to offers. I collect 1st war items and i have had a number of mk1s over the years but never anything like this .
I have read what information there is on line about these Kukri and they are rare? With under 20 known to exist.
The Kukri and scabbard itself is in very good order and all i know about its history that it came from a x officer whos items dated back to 1880s. This i know as the Zulu war club was dated 1886 with the regiment name on it.
Unfortunately the auction wouldnt let me contact the estate no matter how much i moaned about it. Would have loved to know more.
I am open to offers on the knife.

I am unsure on what it is worth and i am open to offers.
i have had a number of mk 1s over the years but not an enfield.
i have read that they are rare and only a small number known to exist. I do collect a 1st war items but this is not my field. I just heard today that the zulu war club that was sold from the same estate sold in the uk for a very large some . There was a regiment and date and regiment engraved on it. Im informed a connection to Rorkes Drift but i don't know how this was confirmed and i have looked for the sale and cant find it but interesting all the same.
