An interesting little khukuri from around 1850-1870. This may have been a
young prince's knife or someone's child in the Royal Court.
It is an incredibly well made tin chirra and the grip mounts are silver as
is the furniture. The scabbard and chape were ruined when I bought this
knife but Terry Sisco did a very nice job (as usual) restoring them.
