This is somewhat of a misconception. Leather cover of handles was found in Afghanistan, and in the khanates of Central Asia, and even on the outskirts of Persia.

Shamshir from Turkmenа

Hello guys

Perhaps someone in the collection has a shamshir sword in a similar decor? I will be grateful if you share photos.

This is Turkmenia in the late 19th century.

Hello.

I think this is a chimera, most likely made in Europe for a European - "lover of the exotic".
