Very nice. Was there any provenance info on the labels for the Bhutanese swords? That is, the reason why they are in a Gurkha collection? Are they captures from the Younghusband expedition, for...

All that is required to support a hypothesis is evidence. So far, no one has brought forward evidence of early or widespread use of the kora in Tibet. On the other hand, there is plenty of evidence...

Those are great illustrations and examples. Thanks!

I'm not knowledgeable about rituals, but the painting of the blade strikes me as more likely to be Hindu, as that description suggests. A lot of...

Yes, Stone appears to be the origin of the terminology. Without his catalog, the issue would probably never have been raised. But if he is the first word on the subject, shall we accept him as the...

I, too, would see no reason to exclude them if they could be demonstrated to be part of that arsenal, which is why I asked if somebody has any. I'm certainly not against the idea in principle, just...

I'd love to see any solid attributions of 'koras' to Tibet. There were certainly examples found there, whether or not any actually originated there. There are some early to mid-twentieth-century...

I thank you, gentlemen. I am normally disinclined to clean too much, but as you can see, it has patina in spades---so much so that there is relatively little contrast with the wood. I shall take...

Kalinga axe

As I collect mostly Tibetan and Bhutanese items, I ask the advice of you Philippines experts from an aesthetic and conservation point of view: would you clean the brass on this 'Kalinga' axe?

A lot of weapons, and by extension, peoples, get lumped together as "Nagas," not to the benefit of clarity of understanding either. For instance, the typical Kachin dao, also found among the Khamtis...

That's a baanmok, a Lepcha knife from Sikkim. There are similarities to the working knives of Bhutan.

I have often wondered if the baanmok blades of the fullered type were made by Nepalese smiths.

A very nice knife. The red cord is characteristic of many Bhutanese swords and knives.

It doesn't strike me as Naga, but waisted hilts appear from Bhutan across northeastern India to Burma. It could be Adi, for instance, but I suppose it could also be a crude golok from Indonesia.

I think that Phuntsho Rapten may have relied a great deal on the expertise of one of his informants, a man that is said to have a considerable sword collection (I have spoken to his son).
