Default Khyber knives

Attached are 8 photos of three Khyber area knives. AKA, Choora or Peshkabz (stone, pg. 180). I think the sheaths are after thoughts. The grips are also unremarkable, with the middlemost, being the poorest. But ironically, the middlemost blade feels very substantial. The other two are also substantial. The middlemost may have been resurrected from something older but the hilt work appears amateurish (plastic and aluminum) . The largest has a hilt of horn and a blade of magnetic stainless steel. As to the grade, identification and age would anyone care to hazard an opinion on any of these?
With Regards, rm
