    I have lost all info I have on the three blades in the middle of this pic. I would like to see if someone can identify them.

    I'm pretty sure the rightmost of the three is a Malla. The cho is pretty distinctive, and it has the simple straight-line Sword of Shiva, and the general blade profile of a Malla.

    The Malla has a flat spine, different from the V-shaped spine of most HI khukuris. Can't tell from this photo, but if it has a flat spine that would be more evidence.

    Not so obvious about the other two. Maybe if you can post the lengths and weights it will help someone to identify them.

    It does, indeed have the flat spine. One identity confirmed. Thank you!

    The middle knife seems to have no maker's mark on the left side of the blade.

    If it's really old, the maker's mark might be on the right side, but it's hard to see in your original photo.

    If you can get a closeup of the right side it might allow identification.
