Sheathed dagger, sheath says Nepal and has 3 coins. The blade is curved and has decorative engravings.
10" overall, 5.5" blade.
Unknown. Belonged to my grandfather.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a Nepalese Kukri knife. Such knives are typical for the Gurkha soldiers in British service. This piece was made in the second half of the 20th century.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 30 to 60 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
