Ghurka Fighting Knives, from India. A pair of kukri, the distinctive fighting knives of this famed tribal group the British first learned to fear, and then quickly learned to appreciate, during their suzerain of India. Each with heavy streamlined blade, the reverse of a scimitar, tapering to a form fitting handle in black horn, with brass bolsters. These housed in rugged wood and black leather sheaths, with two supplemental miniature kukri at top and behind. One of the tiny knives missing, otherwise both complete and finely preserved. Blade lengths: 9-3/4"; 10-3/4". A both decorative and serviceable pair from the last century.
Estimated Value $150 - 200.

Realized $127
