I can buy ( with reservations) the unusual shape of the blade and the latter addition of koftgari ( this may be perfectly correct comment).

But the handle makes no sense at all: no known analogies and its ergonomics is unsuitable for man or beast.

I tend to believe that the entire ensemble is a dog’s breakfast, happily bought by a European visitor with either strange taste or with rudimentary ( if any) understanding. Likely both.

I wouldn’t bid on it. Pure IMHO.
