Here is a picture from Stone, and a quote from his A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armour. In All Countries and in all Times.
LOHAR. A small pick used in place of a sword by the Banochie tribe, a Khyber tribe. Each man makes his own and decorates the handle with inlays of silver and brass. Each individual has his own pattterns which differ from those used by others, though all are similar.
Stone writes in the text to the illustration. 'The handle and the back of the blade are inlaid with silver.
This is interesting, as he points out that the decoration is only at the back of the blade - and not on both sides.
