Here is a interesting and highly decorated kukri. The scabbard with gilt wire work inset with semi precious stones. Possibly made as an early tourist piece or for a high end villager. The second scabbard of this type that I have encountered. A lot of time and skill went into making it.

The kukri itself is horn hilted with a brass bolster. The kukri blade is very sharp, and has Nepalese symbology on both sides.

12 inch blade, 16 inches overall.

£150 inc UK Postage. (One quarter of the sales price will be donated to charities working to assist the victims of the Nepal Earthquake)

Overseas postage at cost.

Payment by Bank Transfer or as a Paypal Gift.
