I need some helping sourcing details on this Knife.

Postby Sminky » Tue Jul 04, 2017 4:08 pm

Hey Everyone

I've been having a very hard time trying to find out more information about this knife. I'm helping my mum clear out some of her old collections. I belive his knife is from the 60's India. It's Brass with what i belive is an embosed depiction of Shiva on it. But i may be widly mistaken.

It's a Pocket knife / Kirpan aprox 3.5" folded. The Blade is 2.5" and surprisingly still sharp. Are there any other details that may help.

Also where is a good place to sell these kind of knives, eBay in the UK dose not permit them.

Many thanks for any help you can give

Chris

What if anything is stamped on the tang of the blade? A picture of it opened up might help.

Ebay today, if it will help any. Item # 142435889606, starting at 19.99. Good luck, it has the "cool" factor for sure. Taz

thanks for the help, unfortuantly eBay in the UK won't let me sell knives. I'm guessing the lsiting you gave isn;t availbe in the UK, could you posible paste the URL for it so i could view it.

Cheers
