This is certainly not ivory. But I don't think this is any kind of plastic. In my opinion, these are small plates of bone from a camel's leg. And yes, most likely the decor was made in the early 20th...

My friend, if you don't see the difference between the items that you and Kubur put up, I can't help you;) For me and, apparently, not only for me - this difference is very noticeable. So is the...

Are you okay if your daggers are 1950s souvenirs? ;) I think this is the most accurate date for them.
But you can believe they were made in the late 19th century. If you like it better;)

Kubur,
Thanks so much for the photo from Robert Hales. Now, when we place the photo next to it, all the differences in the decoration techniques are visible.

And by the way, I can't remember this...

This is a good shamshir. A real sword for war.
I think this is the 19th century (most likely the second half). The fact is that very few 18th century shamshirs are in private collections.
Now about...

Very nice dagger. My congratulations. As mentioned above, not a Khyber knife. This is Karud

In 1860, long before Henry Moser and Stone, the term "Karud" was used by Florian Antonovich Gille.

Hi, Teodor.

The handle from the rhino horn was more common in Central Asia than in Afghanistan (although, of course, there were exceptions). The size of the rivets does not mean anything. Large...

Hello, Phil
I see a cutdown saber blade and the handle of a khyber knife. When the blade and the handle are connected - a riddle))) The handle is made of bone from the foot of some animal (possibly a...

I like this lohar. I think it was made in the early 20th century. However, I see a completely non-typical handle ... It seems to me that the original handle has been replaced ...

Congratulations.

Great dagger. I was offered this dagger a few years ago.
But at that time already I was exclusively collecting arms and armor of Afghanistan.
