Default Another Afar gile

A new Afar gile has arrived with a bone handle of a not quite classic shape, without a cone. The blade was a little disappointing, but considering the little money I paid, I'm pleased.

Hello Pertinax,

I really like your Afar gile, it shows a lot of use and a very nice patination and good preserved, I guess that you gave it some care.
A truly ethnographic knife for low money, congrats!

Regards,
Detlef

Hello Juri,

Could it be that you bought it from me?

I really like your new gile Yuri. The blade may have been ground aggressively, but the fittings are very nice. Are you sure the hilt is bone? Is it possible that it may be some kind of horn?

Hello Маrtin

No, it's definitely not a tree. Is this juice of Afarland?

No Detlef, I first bought the Gile without the sheath, it was in very bad condition. Spent a lot of time and got it in order. About a year later I managed to find a scabbard for it. This is the result of all my work.:п

Hi Yuri,

It looks very similar to one I sold via ebay some time ago.

Detlef
