Gold Kukri

Place of Origin: Nepal

Overall Length: 445mm (17.5 Inches)

Reference: 372

Status: Available

Full Description:

This kukri is of exceptional quality (similar examples are often called ‘palace kukris’).

The hilt is carved from animal horn and polished to present a smooth black finish. A bolster of solid gold lends additional strength and a useful counterbalance to the heavy steel blade which is of typical form, cut with a ‘cho’ notch at its base and curving sharply to one side at the mid-point.

No expense has been spared on the scabbard. Solid gold mounts have been applied to a leather-covered wooden core, the locket chased with a square panel to depict a restful bird against a backdrop of dense flowers and foliage. The chape is decorated mostly en suite with semi-symmetrical foliate motifs.
