    A thread in the general forum made me realize that I have never posted the entry for "kukri" from Stone's Glossary.



    Its full title (A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armor: in All Countries and in All Times, by George Cameron Stone) gives some idea of the scope of this amazing and unique reference. Every serious student of edged weapons should have a copy in the library or on the Kindle.

    One more fabulous khukuri from the George Cameron Stone collection. For some reason, this one didn't make it into the book.
