    Mark,

    I have been collecting markings on kukri for several years, with attribution to known firms where possible. I know others have done the same.

    Thank you for the kind words David.

    Important that the truth should be put forward I think, especially for the protection and encouragement of young and novice collectors, who may be drawn in by...

    Another image, of lesser importance, is a photograph which sometimes is attributed as being a Mess Orderly in WW2. I have never found a solid date attribution for the image, although in one very old...

    The main purpose of this article is to address the current and rather dangerous trend which assumes that:

    The next two examples are regimentally etched on the blades to the 4th Gurkha Rifles.

    Hello David,

    Another good find. I would place your kukri from mid WW2 onwards. The use of steel rather than brass fittings is a good general indication of earlier production.

    Probably made for...

    Apologies for that...

    I assumed that as they are so hard to come by, sharing information and images would be the next best thing.

    I can stop if you like?

    Thank you David,

    I don't really see the point in hoarding a collection when it could be shared and enjoyed by many.

    Having these kukris together is a unique opportunity for us to learn more.
