Default The circles

The same circle motif is found in China/Vietnam/Loas and I am sure other localities close to these regions...I have a few pieces supporting this.

As for this knife presented, as noted by Rick, the only other factor to look at on this knife is the bolsters, not much else reveals it's true nature. I would go with the Afghan regions looking at the "crude" (for want of a better word) workmanship, the bolsters, the bone hilt slabs and the circle motifs.
