My guess would be Austrian. There are many WWI Austrian fighting knives, with ornately carved handles. As to it's purpose, I'd guess with only a point, it's a "sticking" knife. For the coup-de-grass...

That would be a MkII, kinda sorta. The Mk 3 is current issue. There were many hundreds of "theater" knives, with stacked leather handles. ;)

What you see on the pommel, is just an add-on. The hilt is two-handed. 29" blade, with an overall length of 38 1/2"

Absolutely beautiful Naga Items Vandoo! What about this one? No one who has commented on this thread, has commented on my thread on this sword. Being from the same general region, I thought there...

The Algerian, may be Algerian, but I don't think it's a real gun. I've seen, and owned many decorators, with the same hammer, and aluminum furniture. The sheet metal trigger guard is another...

Where's all the Dha people? I know this sword is pretty obscure, but a little discussion might possibly lead to references, or photos of more examples.

Makes sense. Guess they hadn't come up with the captive rammer, as in most western cavalry muzzle loaders.

I have a question... What's the point of a dummy ram rod? I had one of these once, and thought it a tourista replica, because of having a carved rod. That would make loading, problematic. Unless they...

Here's a couple shots of the "throat". The sword fits tight, where the hilt binding starts. It appears that the middle binding, keeps the end of the scabbard from separating. I see no evidence of...

Was it a bidding war, or straight-up purchase? Maybe the coins, maybe the inscription, or both?

In helps to spell things right. I meant ANZAC: Australia and New Zealand Army Corps.

That would give it an Oceanic connection. A trip to the trenches in WWI, would add the iron.

Aka Peoples of Assam Wetzfa Sword

ANZAC trench club? I saw a club on ebay years ago, that looked like a Knobkerrie, with added WWI hobnails, and markings.

That is truly amazing. Excellent score! Very few would not admire the workmanship. I'm sure, the carver had to walk away periodically, so as not to get dizzy, or go blind completely! :p

Well, I paid $15.00 for the last one, 25 years ago. Got around $500.00 on fleabay. Paid a tad over a hundred for this one. Considering inflation, not too bad.
