Ottoman leather ammunition holder

These 2 seem identical, just the one is missing the outer leather cover. Anyone knows where they come from? They hava a "bosnian" feel to me.

Various war clubs

I am wondering about the origin of these war clubs. Three of them are made of wood, the rest i would say is from another material that looks like bone or horn.

These sword clubs resemble the ones from Crete, but i believe they are not from there! They do not have patina, and look fairly new. Any ideas about their origin?
