A very rare and high quality Kukri.

This heavy court kukri offers the best of both worlds, fighting type of large proportions and a very presentable gold and silver dress.
Overall the Kukri is 53cms long in its sheath. Out it is 48.5cms long with a blade 39cms long.
The hilt is expertly chiseled steel and is embellished with applied gold leaf that shows very crisp detail despite being age worn in places.
The blade shows old sharpening grind marks to its edge but it does not detract from the stunning tight birds eye Damascus and precise fullerings. The right face of the blade shows a single row is carved fullers running the entire length of the blade while the left face shows a double row if similar fullers running the length of the blade but shorter in size.
The Kukri's bolster is silver.
The sheath timber with a heavy felt like covering encased in high quality coin silver Kothimora dress. Of particular interest in the Yin Yang balanced nature of the designs. From the flowers to the vine designs to the rear and the designs on the upper and lower edges of the throat piece, each opposite is of an alternative but complimentary style.
Also of special note is the Elephant on the upper fitting, a unique design of prosperity and luck.
The scabbard also retains its original heavy silver chain and gem set locket.

A very rare and large variation of a court Kukri.
