Beautiful Dhas! Nicely displayed. Also like that you are watching the humidity. A big factor in deciding how, or if to show.

Not peened. And I just noticed that yours has a butt cap? I'll take a look to see if mine ever did. But I don't think so.

This is one of the longer Kukris I've held.
I think yours has the same etch. Same big ring on the hilt too.

Nice Kukri! Love to see the scabbard. I think the pattern might be a repeated "eye".

Agree with David. I had a similar one for a bit with a horn hilt. I thought it might be 40s to 60s. Nicely made.

I have a spearhead here from the Bikaner Armoury that I thought might be useful for reference. I've liked everything I've seen and handled from Bikaner. Solid, no nonsense weapons.

What a lovely sword! I think because they are so rare, the type is either overlooked or under-appreciated by Western collectors. The one that I've held has all the qualities you describe. It is...

Bunti wood

Hello. What is recommended to clean and care for Bunti (Banati) wood? Are there any things that help or hinder the grain appearance? Linseed oil? Boiled/raw?
Thank you!

Nice knife, I think. I have a relative of this one. Although quite a bit larger. I've always considered it very well made and for real use.
