Pesh Kabz - Afghanistan or Bukhara
Here we have a pretty standard pesh kabz with a wootz blade. I believe one of the hilt scales is rhino horn (pictured), while the other one is a replacement with some other brown horn. The rivets are covered by mother of pearl insets on the rhino horn scale. I personally do not know enough about these to be able to determine where they are from - Afghanistan or Bukhara?
