Hi,
Still no pics. I am not an expert on using this site, but the most common error is trying to download pictures that are too big=too many pixels. After you choose the pictures and press dowload, look if they appear under your post. If not, downsize the pics and try again.

Looks like a hunting sword. I have a similar pandour one in bone:

Wayne nailed it. It is an Eastern European hunting hanger/pandour, late 18th I'd say. Nice piece!
