I know this isn't a kukri, but I hope you will forgive me for posting under the circumstances.
The sword pictured below has gone missing (presumed stolen) from a good friend of mine while in the care of a well known global shipping company.
He is offering a reward. It was shipped out in October 2011.
At some point this sword WILL show up, possibly for sale somewhere, so please save a copy of this picture so that you will be able to easily check if you see something similar.
Any information please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will put you in touch with the swords rightful owner.
Please spread the word, lets se if we can reunite this sword with it's owner.
