Please, note that...

Hi,

From what I see it's a very net gun, in very good condition.
As you wrote the suspension rings are a late addition, probably also the big screws. The barrel bands are missing.
The lock is...

Hi
It's a nice jambiya from Aden.
It depends what you call old, if old is 1950ties, it's old.
I think it is hornoid or bakelite.

Yes this is from Turkey, it's engraved and filled with silver, a very different technique than the koftgari used in the Balkans. The date is on it 1858. :)

It's much better and now you see what I mean with the chillanum.
I don't know if the chillanum is the ancestor of the khanjarli but these weapons are from the same family and they are not the same!
