Default Small(ish) Khukuri with round guard.

Just bought this one from an antiques dealer in Spain. It wanted to come home with me. Unusual in that it has a circular steel guard disk that looks fairly substantial. Binding near scabbard mouth appears to be a leather thong. and there appears to be a crack in it that will need addressing.

Vendor Description:
Nepalese traditional knife, not a piece for tourists, very sharp quality blade, wooden sheath with fine artisan engravings

LOA: 30 blade:22cm.
