I wouldn't say that this is typical but nonetheless this sheath covering looks original to me. I have no problem with your dagger, it is a nice and a bit unusual piece.

Hello,

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

I know that the dagger with the naval etching I have shown here is not very old, I would guess 1970s. A bit earlier or later production is of course possible, too. Stainless steel daggers combined...

I think that many 19th and early 20th century Vendetta daggers are decorative or touristic, too. A second piece I own is a miniature version. Because of the size and the delicate construction it is...
