Default Another Club I just aquired and kukuri

Hi All,

My club collection is coming along (never intended collecting these to be honest, but you know how it is)

Just won this at auction
Any idea as to where it might be from?
I will have it in a week or so 27 .5 inches long

Also won this from same collection this Kukuri which looks to be a nice functional but decorative piece

kukuri total length 17 inches


From an old family collection according to seller, whom i have no reason to doubt

Thanks as ever for any opinions

Ken

The kukri is around WW1 period - 1920s. Probably made in North India around Dehradun. looks dirty. Should clean up with some 0000 fine steel wool. Wax and grease remover and some time.
