Hanshee Lambendh Gorkhali Kukri
Hanshee Lambendh Gorkhali Kukri (khukuri).  18th-19th century  North India  - Nepal  Overall 54 cm, Blade 40 cm, Handle 16,5 cm, Drop 12,5 cm.  The long handled Kukri knife goes under the name of Hanshee or Lambendh. It is known to be a warrior / martial Kukri that was used in the battles and wars until the mid 1800´s.  It is a most difficult Kukri to find.    Part of the criteria is the handle`s length is over 13 cm, here we have 16,5 cm.  These Kukri knifes were very popular in the unification period of Nepal (1750-1770) and continued to be used in the Anglo-Nepal War 1814-1816 and up till the Indian Mutiny 1857, from whence it declined in popularity.  It is therefore very difficult to exactly date the Kukri and why we have chosen the period of 18th-19th century, most likely early 19th century and could perhaps have been used in the Anglo-Nepal War, perhaps older.  The Hanshee /Lambendh Kukri often has a long, slim and curved blade, that at times reminds of the boomerang, similar feature can be seen here.  The Kukri knife has been used throughout the Himalayas as the Kingdom of Nepal was expanding from Bhutan in the east to Kashmir in the West in the early 19th century.   The Sirupate style is known for its slim blade and considered very lethal and held in high regard among the native ethnic tribes of the Himalayas. The long handle is a typical feature of its time and many of the early images of the Nepalese, Gurkhas, and Gorkhalis they are shown with similar pieces.   The handle allows both one and two hand use of the Kukri and is a genuine piece of a history little known that we can only study further.  The handle is made from dark brown wood, possibly rose wood and carries a floral pattern towards the middle, often attributed to Eastern Nepal and the Darjeeling region.

anglo nepal war gurkha Hanshee Lambendh Gorkhali Kukri (khukuri).  18th-19th century  North India  - Nepal  Overall 54 cm, Blade 40 cm, Handle 16,5 cm, Drop 12,5 cm.  The long handled Kukri knife goes under the name of Hanshee or Lambendh. It is known to be a warrior / martial Kukri that was used in the battles and wars until the mid 1800´s.  It is a most difficult Kukri to find.    Part of the criteria is the handle`s length is over 13 cm, here we have 16,5 cm.  These Kukri knifes were very popular in the unification period of Nepal (1750-1770) and continued to be used in the Anglo-Nepal War 1814-1816 and up till the Indian Mutiny 1857, from whence it declined in popularity.  It is therefore very difficult to exactly date the Kukri and why we have chosen the period of 18th-19th century, most likely early 19th century and could perhaps have been used in the Anglo-Nepal War, perhaps older.  The Hanshee /Lambendh Kukri often has a long, slim and curved blade, that at times reminds of the boomerang, similar feature can be seen here.  The Kukri knife has been used throughout the Himalayas as the Kingdom of Nepal was expanding from Bhutan in the east to Kashmir in the West in the early 19th century.   The Sirupate style is known for its slim blade and considered very lethal and held in high regard among the native ethnic tribes of the Himalayas. The long handle is a typical feature of its time and many of the early images of the Nepalese, Gurkhas, and Gorkhalis they are shown with similar pieces.   The handle allows both one and two hand use of the Kukri and is a genuine piece of a history little known that we can only study further.  The handle is made from dark brown wood, possibly rose wood and carries a floral pattern towards the middle, often attributed to Eastern Nepal and the Darjeeling region.
