Not peened. And I just noticed that yours has a butt cap? I'll take a look to see if mine ever did. But I don't think so.

This is one of the longer Kukris I've held.

Nice Kukri! Love to see the scabbard. I think the pattern might be a repeated "eye".

I have a spearhead here from the Bikaner Armoury that I thought might be useful for reference. I've liked everything I've seen and handled from Bikaner. Solid, no nonsense weapons.

Bunti wood

Hello. What is recommended to clean and care for Bunti (Banati) wood? Are there any things that help or hinder the grain appearance? Linseed oil? Boiled/raw?
Thank you!
