There is a lot of speculation as to what sort weapon or weapons Jack the Ripper may have used, one of these is the kukri or kukris. A lot of British soilders had kukris while they served in India in the 1800's. Many of these kukri found there way into the British market for anyone to purchase. The blade of a kuri is very strong and has a distinctive blade shape.

This is the grinding process that I have to do get the features of the animal to come forth.
It's looks and sounds a lot more brutal than it is. Actually, I'm being very careful.
This is the sanding phase where I carve all of the features and then sand them down.
This sculpture has been accepted into the
Art At The Georgia National Fair Exhibition

Mary Jane Kelly's Hand
Charcoal, chalk on UART paper
Another image from my ongoing series "Altered".
I drew this because a few of Jack the Ripper's
victim's were found with their left hand draped over their bodies
(depending on how many victim's you think there are.)
It may be a coincidence that they were left that way
or it maybe a consequence of his m.o.

This is a series of illustrations that I am creating, working name “Altered”. It is based on the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel. I’ve been fascinated with the murders in London attributed to Jack the Ripper since I was a kid. I do not wish to degrade or ill-use the ladies who were murdered; I think they have been exploited enough. My aim is to describe the living condition’s of the East Enders in London in that particular era, to understand the desperation of the people and the ladies who were to become victimized by Jack the Ripper and subsequently by gawkers, hawkers and entrepreneurs. And mostly, like all of us Ripperologist (people who study the crimes of Jack the Ripper), to ask the question by means of creating my images, what sort of person would do such a thing? “Profiling is nothing more than an opinion of the individual preparing the profile; It’s not a science, it’s an Art.”, FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood, Jack the Ripper documentary.
