The title was deliberately shortened; the full version would sound something like " The oldest dated Khyber I can recall"
The date is acid etched on the blade: 229H ( 1229, of course), i.e. 1813 in Gregorian.
The handle was damaged, and the bolster and tangband are made of brass.
Any criticisms or doubts?
