A good large Khyber / Khayber knife or Salawar.
This example measures just over 78cms long with a blade length just under 64cms.
The grip slabs are carved horn with a steel bolster.
The blade has the typical thick pronounced T-spine running the full length of the blade.
To the forte are tribal designs to both sides and towards the end of the fuller that rund under the T-spine, there is the symbol of an arrow, not unlike the military Broad Arrow, again on both sides.
A very good fighting sword from the Central Asian regions.
