Richmondshire veterans have helped carve a wooden case to display a ceremonial knife.
The case has been presented to the district council.
Nepalese Ambassador, Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi gave the authority a ceremonial khukuri.
The khukuri is a Nepalese knife with an inwardly curved blade which is a characteristic weapon of the Gurkha.
It will displayed in the council chamber at Mercury House in a wooden case made through the Healthy Horizons programme which sees veterans try their hand at new skills.
They worked with master craftsman, Terry Harrington, to make the case.
