100% right it is a trigger, and I can prove it but I need to scan the page of the book where the piece is coming from.

Not from a torador but from a Persian matchlock.

I think Philip is right.
It is not a touristic sword, and a replaced tang is not a problem especially associated with a sandwich hilt or sandwich ricasso.
Look at mine with a very similar blade...

Hi Ariel,

I should develop here.
For Nimcha, takouba, kaskara, the differences are obvious with local hilts and imported blades. With Japanese swords, it is another league and a "national sport"....

Even I would call it, sword-stick with yataghan grips.

Sorry David I missed your post.

You are correct, many Persian and Caucasian weapons are in Turkish collections.

I agree I think they are from Chad.
I'm very surprised that no one told you that they are purely decorative/touristic items. Look at the material used, brass, and the barbs/fish bones badly cut and...

Mmmm I don't know very much about these swords. But I have many books about Sufism.

I agree at 100%. I have several Chinese swords and they are all in between 1850 and 1920. The 1900-1920 swords and the so-called boxer rebellion are not difficult to find. The problem is when people...

As mentionned previously, this sword is crudely made, the poor cast and the Buddhist designs, are all signs of a late 20th c., not even a fake, but a Chinese fantasy.

From what I see it's 99% Qajar 19th c.
