Not Omani IMHO. Here is a pic of an Omani bandolier. Note that the stoppers are leather/fibre rather than metal caps. My thinking is the Balkans somewhere.

Hi Kubur,
No, the stars are different. Yours have 8 points and those on mine only 6. Not to say though that those on your sword are Indian copies.

Blade marks on Tulwar sword

Can anyone please ID the blade marks on this Tulwar sword. Thought is that they are possibly of European origin, rather than from India.
