Sorry if my post wasn't clearer; I was referring to the first picture with the wooden scabbard.

Now I see your true genius! First, you get a great sword from your wife and then you reward her by giving your wife a beautiful 19th Century Navaja.
You my friend are the master of mental jiu-jitsu.

Very nice sword. The scabbard looks like a Maasai sheath without the leather covering; do you think that it is original to the blade?

Funny, I thought the same same thing about the handle resembling that of a dha. If not Eastern European, do you think that it could be Persian?

Non Standard Yataghan

This is a slightly different yataghan in that the handle is brass, without the typical ears on the pommel of the handle or the reinforcement metal work on the ricasso.
The blade may have originally...

In regards to a handguard disqualifying it as a military weapon, I respectfully disagree. We have our famous American Civil War "D Guard Bowies," The L.F.&C & the ACCO 1917 Trench Knives, as well as...

The metal piece in front of the "D guard," is actually part of the blade; the same configuration as yours at the base of your blade above the hilt only shorter.

What you state makes complete sense; maybe it was a battlefield pick up and the soldier dated it and named it. One of the American Campaigns in the Philippines was against Mindanao from July 4, 1902,...

A Very Interesting Philippine Weapon

Well, interesting to me anyway. I think that this Philippine dagger was picked up by a US soldier and converted into a "D Guard," knife. Thank God that it was dated or it would probably have been...

Yemenite Saif ?

I recently got this saif and after looking at all of the similar swords, I'm guessing that this sword is from Yemen. Further guesses are that it has a European blade and that the scabbard has been...

Thanks, Corrado26. Can you believe that it actually cocks and strikes? It is quite long(60"), & heavy and I would guess there once was a bipod where the sling is now.

Indo Persian Musket ?

I just picked up this percussion musket and I was wondering if anyone could give a hint as to its origins based on the lock plate.
