The black one is Sevillan style but most likely made in Albacete.

The other one is a kind of mixed and it confuses me but it definitely looks Spanish, close to Albacetan style.

I consider it a qaddara all the way. And definitely not tourist.

And as you observe, the blade is most likely a repurposed saber blade.

Where and when?

Very interesting piece.

I do not think there is any solution that would allow cleaning it without damaging the koftgari.

The less damaging might be to try to immerse the blade in Picreator's...

Thank you David for the additional photos!

The wootz pattern is consistent with Qajar period wootz.

So I guess I was wrong. :)

Hello David,

I have major doubts about the age of this sword. I suspect it to be a 20th century Indian/Pakistani panoply hanger.

First, the scabbard is a mixture of Turkish (stitched with...

It appears to be an old wootz kard blade re-mounted.

I believe that neither the scales nor the scabbard are the original. Possibly also the tang is a replacement.

However, the knife is in very...

As far as I remember this was a common practice... and fashion among German students in the 19th... maybe even early 20th century.

20th century Omani khanjar, yes, but I do not think it is made in Oman.

My guess would be Indian workmanship.

Late 18th to early 19th century?!

In Japanese swords they are perfectly aligned.
