Royal Nepal Army Officers Kukri (possibly Rana family officer)

 

late 19th-early 20th century

Nepal

 

A historically rich Kukri of the Royal Nepal Army, as issued and used in the late 1860`s-1920´s.

Marked with Sun and Lion on each side of the blade.

Bhojpure style blade and a carved Chinte dragon-lion head image on the dark horn handle

, a image of mythical origins and based on the Buddhist-Hindu traditions.

A Officers Kukri during the Rana Era, most likely specific to a regiment or a clan of people, i.e the Rana family.

 

Overall 17 inch long, Blade 13 inch long, Belly 2.4 inch wide, spine 0,28 inches at thickest point.

weighs at 18+oz,

 

SOLD

 

 

Gurkha Antiquess & SirKukri`s research over the past years along with some visits to Nepal can conclude the following.

 

1. Rana era made, 1846-1951, and particular the time of 1860-1890.

2. Several of these lion marked ones were owned by Jung Bahadur Ranas (JBR) family, his sons and grandsons in particular stand out with lion motived kukris but also found among the Shamsher branch (JBR brother Dhir`s descendants.)

3. Other similar pieces as far as overall design go were used at least until end of ww1.

4. The lion was also commonly used in the Royal Nepal Army in the 1800`s.

some nepalese guns too show up with lion images.

5. The sun denotes the Rana family`s heritage from the Sun dynasty according to the Hindu belief, surya-vanshi.

 

Ca 15 of these Sun and Lion marked Kukri knifes are known to exist outside of Nepal making them very rare and thus also a highly sought after piece.
