Antique Presentation Kothimora Kukri Khukuri

SOLD Antique Presentation Kothimora Kukri - Khukuri of the 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles in a solid silver mounted scabbard. Kothimora Khukuri - Kukri is traditionally presented to the British and Gurkha Officers from his Regiment for his courage, sincerity and loyalty to the Regiment and the nation on his retirement.

Details: A wooden scabbard with two small companion knives, covered in burgundy velvet, with a large silver locket, pierced and chiseled in relief with scrolling foliate and floral motifs, against a red background incorporating a badge of the 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles, surmounted by a lion's head. A large silver chape decorated in suite with the locket, and joined by two solid silver reinforcement straps. The middle of the scabbard is adorned with a large silver plaque repousee, and chased with a peacock. A re-curved single edge steel blade with a long shallow fuller, engraved and inlaid with brass along the back-edge, mounted in a horn hilt with a brass cup and ferula.

CONDITION: In good condition considering its age. The red velvet on the back of the scabbard is with glue stains, as the kukri in the past was glued to the back of a display case, otherwise in good condition.

MEASUREMENTS: Overall length with the scabbard: 38 cm (15 in), overall length without the scabbard: 37 cm (14 1/2 in).
