Victorian Era Nepal Gurkha Kukri - 750076
Victorian Era Nepal Gurkha Kukri
These original battle kukris were made in early 1900's. Each kukri was hand made. The steel was smelted, forged, shaped, and hammered in Nepal by individual Kamis. As spears and the Kora sword were being replaced by firearms, the kukri was the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat. From the design we would date these Nepalese Officer's Kukri's from around the early 1900's. These Victorian Era kukri's were made by hand for the British Gurkha Regiments as their standard issue sidearm for Officer's. A ferocious weapon in those warrior's hands. No Scabbard.
