antique bojpure blade
I bought this bojpure blade along with a longleaf blade. This bojpure is over an inch longer than the longleaf, and has a broader blade. It is about two inches longer than my modern production, traditional style kukri and has a much broader blade. It is far more imposing as a weapon. It is also made of a vastly tougher grade of steel. Harder than any weapon in my collection. I did not pay for hand selection, and this blade is in rough condition. The edge looks to have suffered major damage at some point and was crudely repaired. The tip is broken off. None of this detracts from this beautiful antique. I have attached a custom handle. I am leaving the heavy patina intact and will touch up the edge so that it will continue to live on as a fearsome weapon.

After the grease was taken off blades were very clean barely any rust marks on them

The blade was in great shape and well protected in grease.  Once it was cleaned up I took a file to the edge checking the temper.  The spine is soft and the edge was very hard, perfect for a big chopper.  The next few days were spent mounting it on a horn handle and making a leather sheath.  After putting a shaving sharp convex edge on the blade (which didn't take much) it was ready to go.  Oak, Hickory and Elm have been getting cleared off of our property ever since, the edge still shaves!

Unfortunately did not come with a kanzo (bolster) so it will be awhile before I try to assemble it.  But still worth every penny as they're not making any more of these.

this product did not please me .the blade has been scraped or/ or  sanded ,  then covered in sticky stuff like i have found on guns not old. also it has a major flaw at the blade tip  about 1/2 in back on both sides.  acc has done this to me before . not the way i did business  . i will keep the blade because i should have sent it back in a timely matter , my fault ,  not theirs . the blade is a 4 the service not so high  . i have ordered blades before and have excellent results. if you buy one i recommend that you inspect it immediately .

Last one I purchased Came out beautiful. Definitely an old combat used Kukri. Under the cosmolene & rust it was stamped in ancient Sanskrit. Sent a photo to a knife maker in Napol who was able to have it translated for me. It now has a beautiful antler handle and is very impressive. Thanks
