Maybe the dagger has some Kurdish look but I am quite sure it is fully Persian.

The sword is certainly a Persian blade with probably a Sudanese hilt as you have noticed.

Other than that, I cannot...

The hilts get damaged quite easily and I wouldn't dismiss the possibility they were replaced/restored with some kind...

Anyhow, it is quite clear they weren't meant for battle but for dress, ceremonial or other purposes...

I would say it is a good example of higher quality, made in the first half of XX century with a locally made blade (probably from spring steel). :shrug:

Thank you for your suggestions!

Will try brushing off the rust. See how it works out.

No comments about the sword?!

My guess would be Scottish, late 18th century, but I am not very knowledgeable .

Already tried brushing off the brown rust. Even added some WD40. Some came off, but most of it remained.

"Hungarian" blades were called "Hungarian" because either were imported by the Ottomans from Hungary, or because they were engraved & sometimes mounted in Hungary.

It is somehow...

Yes, it seems to be if not by the same smith, most certainly from the same centre of influence and of the same period.
