A very nice early Kora or Khora hilted fighting Kukri.

This Kukri measures just under 49cms tip to tip. The tip of the blade to the centre of the bolster is 38cms.
The entire piece has a very fine and untouched age patina.
The hilt has darkened with age whilst the blade has retained much of its old polish.
The blade surfaces show a rare long laminated steel contruction resembling that of hair pin patterns found in Tibetan swords and those of surrounding areas.
The right side of the blade shows these laminations being narrow through the forte and widening throughout the hollow forged belly.

A very good example of a seldom seen Kukri type.
