A rarer variety of khukurī knife with an iron sword hilt with a grip between two round plates. The style is reminiscent of the hilts on Nepalese kora swords, while the grip section itself reminds a little of that found on some talwar hilts.

Such sword-hilted khukurī are often quite early, their use going back to the early 1800s and perhaps even earlier than that. This particular piece has a blade shape with a deep notch that appears to indicate a later 19th-century date, showing the concept remained in use for some time.

A very large piece with a good, heavy blade. The scabbard missing some parts.
