The stock looks like a British sporting gun stock, but the barrel more resembles those on Indian Toradors especially the flared mouth. Maybe Indian or Afghani?
Just a guess really.

The subject dagger is an Al Mahri Khanjar, not a Shafra. (A Shafra is a small utility knife often worn behind a Jambiya) Refer Elgoods Arms and Armour of Arabia.

Hi Norm and Jim,
This sword was SOLD at auction here but is not owned by me. However the blade was described as double edged.

Once again thank you Jim. The pics you posted show several different types of blades (some look to be repurposed) so the subject blade which sold here could also be a repurposed blade, or made in...

Hi Jim,
Thanks for your contribution. Much appreciated. Yes I would perhaps call this a Sukhela but any illustration I can find suggests that the Sukhela blade has paralel sides rather than tapered...

What hilts are your fullered blades on? Do you have any blades like this with TULWAR hilts. If so could you please post some pics.

UNUSUAL TULWAR for COMMENT

This Tulwar just finished at auction here and I am interested to see what Members think about the blade. It looks very much like a Takouba type blade but does not appear to be a "hybrid" creation. ...

Hi Kubur,
Yes I agree it is a town, now called Pathein. The point I was trying to make was how you think that your dha originated there, unless of course it says so on the piece, and how you can...

Bassein???

Hi Kubur,
If you check out this link you will note that Burma has been called Burma for centuries, and as far as I can see from the Wiki history it has never been called Bassein. Therefore one can...

IMHO this dha looks to be very modern. Nice looking piece but IF the name punched in is of a silver/goldsmith then I would have expected a much tidier script. A translation of the Burmese might...

Taken a while but have at last enlarged that mark inside the lock. Looks to me as if it is C?R perhaps.
Does anyone recognise this mark?

Hi Ken,
The leather reminds me more of Africa somewhere rather than European East. Stud work is quite common on North African guns and it would make sense to have some way of carrying over the...

Hi Ken,
Interesting old piece. A clue to origin could be the type of bird the feathers came from. If you have a knowledgeable ornotholigist nearby he could be well worth a visit.

Hi Jim,
Once again thanks for a most useful and informative post. Seems to me that the hilt style varies by region which should make origin easy, but of course it does not. Just gives a guide to...

Hi Jim,
I guess the door is still open in terms of the origins of my Tulwar. So it could be either North or South India depending on your particular view. Anyway lets say at least it is Western...

I agree with Teodor. A nice piece showing (IMHO) genuine age wear particularly to the wooden handle.

Thanks Nihl this is what I was hoping to find out. From the comments in Tirri's book it would appear that different hilt styles are also called by different names. Any idea on this one?
