A kindjal with heavy long tip ( caucasus ?)
3 Attachment(s)
Good morning dear members,
Here a kindjal dagger I just received.
Seems not bad but it is maybe recent work.
I wonder if it is really a good one and where it can come from and his age...

The blade has a really strong and long tip
I dont know where it can come from
( Caucasus ?...)

I saw no stamp/signature but it must ne silver or silver alloy

Kind regards

I could be wrong, but Turkish tourist piece is my thought.

Here other pictures,
Hope it can help,
Maybe the scabbard was too strongly cleaned,
It clearly looks too "shiny"

Seems a good one...:)

There is not always a silver stamp or maker's mark
as this similar caucasian kindjal from Czerny's. $$

If you want to be sure, you can test it with a silver acid kit or go to a jeweller...

PS: maybe an etching of the blade could reveal something ( cf fullers...)

There is nothing wrong with this Kindjal. All parts are typical for Dagestan, probably made in the early 20th century. Nice piece.
