Hi Teodor,
A very nice and interesting Nimcha you have there. Quite early in terms of date I would think.

Very nice and interesting pistol Jim. Right up my alley!!! Attached reference from Flayderman shows your piece. The values shown are around 1980 I think. If not allowed please delete them.

Hi Ken,
Not my bag, but nice items. My guess would be Africa (somewhere) or maybe Indonesia. Unlikely to be Pasifika as they tend to have wood or bone tips. Attached is a link which may be helpful....

I agree with Drac. I had not thought of the staples being brittle. Leave them in and support from underneath.

Hi Jeffs,
Depends on how dry the wood is after you have oiled it. I would use PVA wood glue if the wood is dry enough. Apply glue and then clamp the crack together and allow time for glue to dry....

Hi Jeffs,
I should have said that if you have a spent brass cartridge case somewhere around 303 cal, squash the open end and use that. Handy tool which I use often in this situation.

Keep going with the vinegar soaking.....it will shift the rust, but GIVE IT TIME. If you have a piece of rigid brass (sheet or bar), you could use that to loosen the caked rust. Use it like...

Yes, the horn and "triangle" shaped flask with the inset "coin" are from Morocco. The round flask underneath "the box" you are holding is also likely Moroccan.

Rust removal.

Hi Jeffs,
White Vinegar yes, but domestic steel wool rather than sandpaper. Even a firm rubbing with a rag will often surfice if the rust is not too bad.
Very nice knife by the way.
