I think too the hilt is elephant ivory, but it appears to be an old, repaired hilt, mounted on a contemporary Indian blade. Check the filled holes and the resin.

Appears to be a very early doloire, possibly late medieval.
Haft should be much shorter, about half that size.

Very possible.
I have a similar fokos, bearing logos of the boy scouts and the world jamboree that was held at Gödöllő (Hungary), 1933.

I'm thinking of Roman Spatha here. Two similar length swords were excavated in Masada and in Gamla, which makes it a very early Spatha (late 1st c. CE).

Quite large (appr. 16 GA), so I think it could be dual-purpose - for slugs and shots.

What caliber is it?
If I'm not mistaken, there were large ga. pinfire cartridges, for shotguns of the period. Maybe this pistol could fire either slug or shots.
Very nice looking pistol.
