The bottom one is an Indian knockoff of the Mk 3 pattern kukri, with a phony mark resembling a British broad arrow and some other illegible writing. The top one has no cho so is probably best described as the blade of an unknown KLO.

I'd say you got a couple of potentially fun projects. Check the edges with a file to make sure they've actually got some degree or another of temper, clean 'em up a bit and re-handle if you need to, then go play!

At worst, you've got two blades to learn re-handling on without a big investment, and you never know, you might have a good chopper there too somewhere.
