I hate it when I am looking for one type of knife and get side tracked by another. That is what happened as I was looking on ebay for WW-2 knives and found this Kukri. The condition of its blade and the completeness of the scabbard are what attracted me. Seldom do you find an older Kukri in this condition for a good price. I was the only one to bid on this knife for some odd reason. I think bidders were scared off by the $25 shipping from England. On me sales page I warn buyers that it costs $25 to ship overseas anymore. Anyway it may not be WW-2 vintage but it is a beautiful example.
Whoever owned this Kukri really took good care of it and kept the blade clean of rust and the edge free of chips and dings. The maker cut the fullers pretty straight and crisp. All in all I think it is a lovely weapon. So I will sort out my other Kukri and find one to sell to help pay for this one.
