Default For Sale: Small unusual hilt kukri

I'm selling this due to needing funds for other projects/acquisitions. I'm posting it over here since noone has shown at interest at IKRHS. I've used the vikingsword forums many times in the past for info and research, but haven't posted before this. But I am familiar with the community.

First pics:

Best estimate for age when this piece was discussed on IKRHS was 1930s-1960s. It's fairly small, 9 inches overall length. The hilt is appears to be ivory (but could be bone, I don't have the expertise to judge). Brass bolsters and steel butt cap. It's got some scratches and pitting on the blade as the photos show. The steel's appearance certainly seems consistant with something at least 45-50 years old. As you can see the hilt shape is somewhat unusual. It holds an edge nicely. No sheath I'm afraid.

Asking $65 USD (unshipped). I prefer Paypal. If you need further details or are interested in the piece than please send me a PM and we can discuss details of the transaction.

Price dropped to $50 USD (unshipped), don't think I can go any lower.
