Shirts. Shirts for you. For us. Curated by me. By WE LOVE FINE. They actually went for that one. Can you believe it? Because I can not.
I’m donating my curation commission to FUTURES WITHOUT VIOLENCE which works to end violence against women and children around the world. Sales online of these shirts (and whatever follows) or at shows where WE LOVE FINE are set up — ANY sales of these things — money goes to FWV.
- Dated: 19th century
- Place of Origin: Nepal
- Overall length: 15.5in (395mm); blade length: 12.5in (315mm)
The knife has flared wooden grips, fitted with nicely chased steel fittings. The blade has a very thick spine, and the tang runs through the grips, very much like an Indian kard dagger.
A very unusual cho notch at the base of the blade, with chiselled decoration running along the spine on both sides of the blade. The cloth pouch was probably used to carry tinder or maybe a prayer book/charm.
