Default Steel hilted Kukri.

This is one of my latest finds, at a local Antique Arms Fair. Found at the bottom of a box of bayonets and at a price I could not resist. I have already posted it on a couple of other collector sites, but I know there are others here also fond of the Nepali blade. It's a chiselled steel hilt "angkhola" blade 13 inch long (33 cm) 18 inch overall but a hefty 22.4 oz (635 grm). I think it has a through tang as I can see a washer and a burr at the endcap. No scabbard alas.

It's a very good kukri and looks old to me with the mark on the blade and the work done on the hilt.

That's quite a beauty. I wonder if it could have been a presentation piece? Very nice catch.
