Yes. The swordmasters who signed wootz blades in the 19th century, I can’t remember ... Perhaps because I also do not have Rivkin’s book :)

Marius, I’m not sure I understood your PS correctly :) Therefore, I'm sorry if I answer out of place

In the 19th century, there were undoubtedly blacksmiths in Persia who made swords from wootz....

Marius, I agree with you.
But in rare cases, there are exceptions. For example, when the blades of the Qajar revival blades are made of wootz steel (like this one of my sword).
But, of course, with...

Hi kahnjar1

I read an article in which it is written that such swords, strongly decorated with inscriptions, were made for processions that Shiites conduct on the holiday of Ashura. Also, such...

Hi Marius. You're absolutely right. That is why I wrote before It is impossible to say for sure whether these blades were made in India or Afghanistan.

Hi Kubur
Previously, I was quite “sharp” and caustic in communication :) But after the comments of the moderators forum I decided that it was much easier to be as polite as possible ;)

Marius, I agree with you 200%. Of course, the dagger itself is Persian. I have no doubt about that.
I think it has a scabbard made in Afghanistan, but not the dagger itself;)

Letterings on Pesh-Kabz

Hi guys

My familiar bought this Pesh-Kabz. By the way, I think that this Pesh-Kabz spent the last part of his life in Afghanistan (these are my thoughts because of his scabbard).
Maybe someone can...

A very interesting point is that the mass rejection of blades begins only with the beginning of the 20th century, when border tribes begin to receive rapid-fire rifles from Kabul.

You're absolutely right. In my opinion, this problem exists because Afghanistan was a very closed country in the 19th century. The emirs of Afghanistan supported this isolation. Very rarely,...

Jens, I have no doubt about that. Olufsen brought to Denmark this collection of various weapons at the end of the 19th century from Bukhara. And Torben Flindt wrote a very good article.

Of course, these items are from Afghanistan. It’s not entirely clear to me why Ariel decided that the blades were “Indian trade”. But perhaps he will explain his point of view in the following posts....

Thanks Kubur

You're right, Iraqi, Indian and Sudanese maces are very similar. And I also thought about it.
Therefore, I guessed what kind of photo you thought about.
But ... All these maces are made...

Do you mean the photo album in which the peoples of the Ottoman Empire were photographed in national costumes? In the photo there are usually three people nearby. Or some other photos?

Thanks, Kubur.
It seems to me that there are a number of serious "But":
1) I can’t recall photos men from Iraq with such maces.
2) I can’t remember similar maces in museums that would be attributed...

I suspect that you mean Iraq’s “swamp arabs" or Kurds. Although, of course, I could be wrong and you thought about another country.

Oh yeah. Thank you. I have this book and this article. You correctly noted that my mace is from this private collection and was published in the article about which you wrote. I know it :)
