I got this Kukri today having 'exchanged' it with a friend for half a dozen of my chickens finest eggs. Not a bad deal!
The handle was wrapped in layers of masking tape which had obviously been on there for some time and I was quite surprised to find the bone handle underneath. I've given it a clean up and light rubbing down and it has come up quite nice. What makes it interesting is that on the scabbard written in pencil is a name, which unfortunately I can't decipher (although looks possibly Nepalese) and the date 1942. The scabbard also has a lightly embossed '7'.
Unfortunately my friend had no history on the knife, he was given it a few years ago.
Given the bone handle and the fact that the blade is unmarked I guess that it is a period private purchase / souvenir. Either way it goes nicely with the 1944 dated Royal Artillery, 12th Army battle dress blouse I picked up recently.
