Second group would be the user, there are fighters and also working talibons, see for example here: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ghlight=talibon and here: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ghlight=talibon

At third group are the WWII ones, sometimes very fancy, see here: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ghlight=talibon


Thank you very much for sharing your examples. Great pieces! I love the eye on your Garab.

Do you think these two might be part of the second group? They were previously posted here, along with my own dog-headed Talibon:

As always, thank you for your comments.

Thanks,
