What does "knurled" mean? I cannot find it in my dictionary. Also interesting is how the upper lip is fastened to the cock, very strange.

sword with flintlock pistol

A friend of mine owns this special sword with a SAHAGUM blade and a flintlock pistol. The blade might IMHO be much older than the pistol and so comments are invited.

"XI DVNAN" is certainly not the maker of the gun which has been manufactured around 1600. As there are no marks on the lock or barrel at all, it is very hard to decide where this piece has been...

If Switzerland, the "SZ" could also stand for "Stadt Zürich" (City of Zuerich), but why then the "fleur de lis" which is normally a French symbol?

Strange flintlock gun

Did anybody here see such a gun with such a strange flintlock? There are no marks or stamps on it and the brass pan reminds me on locks of the Osmanic Empire

That's my opinion too. The value of these few silverparts - if it should really be silver - is so little that it is absolutely neglectible. Important for me is a good looking and original item with...

The first day in the new year brought me this fine knife. I think it is a choora made in Afghanistan but am not sure about this. Comments are invited.

Ibrahijm, I think you got it: “INNOMINEDOMINI” should be the solution.

I do not know wether these "eyelashs" hve been in use in India. What I know is that this feature is often to be found on the blades of Hungarian husar sabres.

Many, many thanks, I knew that I get help from here. The problem is now to date this blade. Is it really so much older than the hilt? :confused:
