Default A few more bits from my Gurkha collection

Hi all. Some more bits from my Gurkha collection, as it was displayed in my old house before I remarried! I originally posted these as an album but for those who may have missed it, hope its of interest?

Don't know if you are aware but the Kukri and three daggers (third photo) are touristy kitsch sold in government tourist emporiums in India. The katar - triangular bladed thrusting dagger - is a nice one and seems genuine.

Yes I am aware! they are there simply because they are Indian!

the thrusting dagger is original though
