Original 18th Century Brown Bess Musket Gurkha Kukri Chupri Bayonet
Original Item: Recovered from the kingdom of Nepal in 2003, these are original Kukri bayonets manufactured over 200 years ago for the Brown Bess then later used with the East India Company .75 caliber percussion musket. Every bayonet is unique, no two are alike, and they are massive!
On average the curved blades measure from 12 - 20 in length and 2- 4 in width. Some are marked with Devanagari or Indian script and certainly could have seen use during the Indian Mutiny of 1857-58.
These are exceptionally rare, hardly ever seen on the open collectors market before the importation of the Nepal Cache.
All are sold in untouched condition- meaning they are covered in dried grease and dirt, but after cleaning a few examples, expect minor rust, pitting, nicks as should be expected, overall these are in good solid condition.
Warning: limited stock- very few available.
