The black horn is solid and has some traditional patterns carved into the handle;
it may have been made in North East India, specially Darjeeling and Sikkim areas,
two large areas of Gurkha / Gorkha recruitment
and a well known region for high quality Kukri knifes.
Diamond rat tail brass fitting to handle.
