    I dont think this old the ingraving appears to be more recent and the chain looks new also, for a dump find you can't lose

    I don't know enough about these to make a very valid comment, however, I imagine this is an Officers item and appears original to me. It has some age to it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Obviously full dress ceremonial, but it looks period to me. Doubtful if it is tourist junk-looks to be much too well made. Interesting piece!

    That's been beautifully made,i can't see that being tourist fodder.Even though the style looks very victorian it can't be of that date in my opinion as the 6th gurhka rifles were not named that until 1903,so that rules out that being a victorian crown on the regimental badge.My guess is that it is a 50's/60's ceremonial khukuri for an officer or maybe a presentational peice for a long serveing and retiring soldier.A very nice find!!

    A friend of mine has just bought one similar to this but with different scroll work, it is a ceremonial /parade/award piece and was used for all three purposes, its a nice find as they are quite pricey.
