The knife is likely a Dha perhaps with Yunnan influence as it has a disk guard, rather than the guardless hilt of most Dha.

Hi Ian,
This post is also in the original link I gave. Note the difference in the scabbard.....mine does not have the 2 wide bands that this one has, so they are different swords.

It is quite likely that the gun itself is a lot younger than the lock. As we are well aware, tribal gun makers often used parts from older guns to create their items.

OK there is a Jonathan Hirst listed as working at Tower Hill, London 1760-1805. The dates are right so it could well be him.

I should perhaps also have said that this type of dagger is often refered to in sellers/collectors circles as "Wahabite" which in fact is completely incorrect. The correct term is "Dharia" and is...

Hi Tim,
You may well be correct regarding First Nation origin. I do not know enough about their "equipment", but the phallic shape is quite common among African tribes.

Thanks for the reply Eytan. The hole in the brass spout is round as in a gun muzzle, but there is no open/close facility, and as has been suggested, the brass could well have been added later.

Thanks Colin. I see similarities in the horn you show, especially the faceted shape of the "spout". Is the faceted part on yours made of wood, or is it heavily tarnished brass?
