Knife but from when and where

Hello,

I have this small knife (about 20 cm/ 8") that I have no idea where it came from and when it may have been made.

So any help is welcomed!

The blades may be wootz. Did you consider trying to etch them?

For the last 10 years I have used exclusively Nital 4% for etching wootz.

Now I have run out of Nital and as it proves to be almost impossible to get in Europe, I had to switch to Ferric Chloride....

This one is also very interesting but in my opinion it doesn't look Bosnian.

I am curious what others may say?! :confused:

Anyhow, I notice it is well guarded! ;)

Whether the term "KARUD", for the so called "straight pesh-kabz" is historically based or not is open to debate.

I have seen what I consider to be valid arguments for both opinions.
