A good large old Khyber knife / Salawar.
In untouched as found condition this old short sword from the Afghanistan regions of Central Asia measures 73cms tip to tip and its blade is 58cms.
The hilt is of an old style traditional beaked form. The horn slabs are shaped and pinned with iron rivets. The bolsters are faceted brass panels.
The blade is a forged construction with clear laminations seen beneath the old cosmolene covering. There is a thick 'T' spine running from the hilt to the tip with a fuller beneath this.
A large well priced short sword that will grade up well with little effort.
