395$ Exl. VAT

Origin: Nepal (Or North India)

Date: 19C.

The Hanshee Khukuri is an early type characterized by its narrow blade  long hilt  and the continuous arc shape line of the spine and the hilt.

The blade of the exemplar presented here is of the Hanshee style. The hilt is carved from a long and curved antler horn that together with the blade form the arc shaped Hanshee shape.

Blade 13 inches. Total length 20 inches. Very good condition. Very minor and shallow pitted spots on the blade. No scabbard.

The use of antler horn for handle is  not commonly seen on old Khukuries but we have seen such  handles on the accompanying  knives (Karda and Chakama).  It is however extensively used on modern made Khukuries.  The antler handle on this exemplar  might be a later replacement but old and very well made one.
