Afghan Pesh Kabz
I offer a simple Afghan Pesh Kabz with its scabbard.
I am uncertain about the grip scales, the fill in at the pommel end makes me think it is bone, but I do not see any vascular channels, so I do not know for sure it is not ivory. A strip of horn is inserted in between the two scales on each side, all solid.
The blade is forged in one piece with full width tang and seems reduced due to resharpening. There is scattered light to medium pitting and several delamination lines, hopefully visible on the attached photos.
Scabbard is leather over wood, wire stitched. Small holes on both sides, probably due to wood worms and one bigger defect in the leather on one side. Brass chape is polished bright on one side and matte patinated on the other.
Price 80€ + shipping. Due to uncertainty about grip material no shipping outside of EU.
