Hmmm ... I am looking at my wll display at the next of kin, a Saudi Jambiya and a beduin bridal necklace with silver, blue glass and coralite and think that it could do the trick for the another month too ... A piece a month, considering is never the same, makes you an avid collector ...
Very nice and if I have not thanked you before for the calendar you always do, it doesnt mean I wasnt watching it every month, waiting to come out ... Great job as usual on choosing the most select pieces of ethno-weapons and editing it so impecably professional ... Two thumbs up !
P.S. Your posted mugshot with your wife is just as outstanding or were you just teasing the dude before you with his matriarchal shot ?

Thankyou for the compliments and I am always looking for great pieces to use in these calendars. My own collection is koras and kukris. If any of you want to send me a very high resolution picture from your collection I will try to use it in the coming months. An overall shot plus close-ups and any details give me some creative flexability.

The photo of me with my cat, kukri and mistress was taken weeks ago. That beauty left, but I did keep the cat and traded the kukri for a khanjar which I traded for a kindjal and finally a kard.

The knife shown should properly be classified as a peshkabz. The term "choora" means "the same as" or "as also" in either Afghani or one of that country's many dialects. This comes from when George Cameron Stone had indigenous people identify the weapons for his book and when questioned they would identify the first piece and then say another, another, etc. The grips on this are of ivory.

That's why I am fanatic in this forum! I often learn something new.

But there is no such as an "afghani" language. The main languages spoken in Aghanistan are pasto, dari, hazara, uzbek.

You're absolutely correct about the language. I tried to place the area and let all those dialects fall where they may. Some feel this type knife comes from just the east/northeastern regions of Afghanistan. I don't know enough about them but they seem to be prolific. Better Indo-Persian experts than I on this forum who hopefully will comment.

Trolled? Nah
