Some very interesting topics described here in this index!!!
Most interesting to see the very goals I had always considered to be those of our venues here being formally emplaced in a journal.

The swords and sabres with canted hilts are an intriguing subject of Caucasian arms, mostly pertaining to the Tatar 'ordynka' sabre and the pallasch with skirted scabbard typically attributed to Mingrelian origin.

The 'cut or stab' topic brings to mind the reference to this (I cannot recall offhand the quote) in "Sabres of Paradise" by Leslie Branch.

The Indian arms terminology in classification promises to be profoundly interesting!!! as discussions on the 'name game' have always brought most 'exciting' results around here. A rose by any other name etc etc might have worked for Shakespeare.......but then he never had to classify Indian weapons!!!!

Yes. This is an article of one of the best experts on the peoples of the Caucasus of the Russian museum of Ethnography. In the articles a lot of historical samples of using the kinjals. This is one of my favorite articles on the weaponology at all.

It has been brought to our attention that this site is offering articles for sale. The thread has therefore been transferred to the Swap Forum.
