WWII Nepalese Gurhka Kukri Knife with specially made case.
The knife has a distinct recurve in the blade. It is used as both a tool and as a weapon in the Indian subcontinent. Traditionally, it was, and in many cases still is, the basic utility knife of the Gurkha. It is a characteristic weapon of the Nepalese Army, the Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army, the Assam Rifles, the Assam Regiment, the Garhwal Rifles, the Gorkha regiments of the Indian Army, and of all Gurkha regiments throughout the world, so much so that some English-speakers refer to the weapon as a "Gurkha blade" or "Gurkha knife". (Wikipedia)
This 15" long knife was purchased in Hong Kong. The case was made in Hong Kong by a high ranking security chief. The case is wood/ plexiglass and measures 17 1/2" long, 8 1/2" high, 4" deep.
