There are indications that it is post WW2, the brass bolster and knurling are features associated with the later date as is the reduced size of the grip ring. The blade is very well forged, more so than usual, and the double peen (or are they nails) is an early feature. At a guess, a private purchase officers kukri of the late 1930's early 1940's, possibly even using a refurbished older blade.

Is the grip horn or hardwood?

All in all, a nice item to have in a collection.
