Item history

By the way this came from a neighbor who knows I collect pointy things and was only professed to come from the Lido road during WW2 where he was an engineer. And no there were no Dahs. ;)

Talwar an kukri suspension

Interesting to note the kukri and talwar are shown hung on the same side. This might be artistic license but it looks right. Also,are the dahls used here hide or steel? Very neat picture by the way.
