My Boys’ grandfather spent several years as the HM Forces Gurkhas Officer Commanding in Nepal.
He gave us two of his prized kukris not long after we married and I’ve just spent some time cleaning them. One is a purely functional kukri, the other ornamental.
OMG. The smell of Brasso takes me back decades :o)
My youngest and his Dad spent time in Nepal about 5 years ago. They both visited the place where Himself and my traveller-in-crime (his sister) had lived as young children. And my darling child bought me back a pukka gen Nepalese Prayer Wheel and Singing Bowl.
