The blade is very well forged but seems to have been overused. Dont see any signs of misuse but it seems to have been hammered back in shape more then once.



Salaams Lofty~ Nice wool rugs which appear to be Afghan... split palmette style with interesting VVVVV shaped 4 legged animals which may be stylised camels ... on a central floral ground typically surrounded by 7 borders varying from twizzle twist to "S" pattern.

Oh must not forget the sword !! Looks like a mean weapon of the variety Shamshir and Bedoiun looking to me.. Great idea displayed on the rugs...
