Adding some photos of Sardinian weapons being carried/worn. These are mostly photos of people wearing the iconic Sardinian leppa but a few are photos of people holding the unique Sardinian style of miquelet musket. Most of these I found on Pinterest, while some were found on Russian sites comparing Sardinian swords to Shashkas. I tried to find the highest quality versions of these photos that I could, but some of these photos are still a bit poor in that regard.

The handwritten caption on this photo seems to identify these men as Kurds. Is this incorrect then?

I also asked a local friend here in Armenia and was told they were more likely Laz than Kurds, but I'm not an expert in this

Cool Batak?

I see a piso podang and some interesting spears; not to mention some badiks.
Also the figure on the left seems to have an absurdly large pedang or parang; would love to see what kind of blade is in that scabbard.

Came across this depiction of Baboa people wearing their traditional short swords or knives on an ethnographic arms dealer's site.

Those are some huge bows in proportion to their height!

Changdao, the Aeta people are very short. Men were commonly under five feet tall, but with improved nutrition their average height has increased a few inches since the early 1900s. They are still among the smallest demographic groups in the Philippines.

Indian warrior from Orchha. Mounted Indian warrior with a tulwar sword, wearing mail and plate armor (zirah bagtar), helmet (khula khud) and arm guards (dastana), he is holding a very long lance and there is a shield at his side.
Great photos! Thanks for sharing and editing.

I have a heavy duty Indian spear here of similar length.

I've often thought it was Mughal heavy cavalry, perhaps even Sri Lankan in origin as there are similarities to a very long old Sri Lankan lance here, however, I remain uncertain as the large one does not have the taper and POB like the one in the images.

Thanks again for sharing!

I think this photo was taken between 1880-1920. It will be possible to say more precisely if you are lucky enough to find the original image.
