Such small hunting sabers, in German called Jagdplaute, are relatively common in Germany. So I would guess that your piece is German, too. Often they have a bird on the guard, a fish is far more...

I think you caught a nice fish:D
I would say that it was made in the late 18th or early 19th century. The condition is not so bad, often the scabbards are missing.

The " irregularity" is a decoration element.
A Jagdplaute is a sword and no dagger, so a big part of the blade is lost. In my opinion it's the original blade and belongs to the handle.

Hello,

I would say it is a shortened german "Jagdplaute" from the early 19th, maybe late 18th century.
It is difficult to say more about this piece because it is just a fragment.

Mahratt, I thought these daggers with an iron handle like the warrior on the picture has are called "Chilanum" and Khanjarlis are looking different?

Hello,

You can clean the blade with oil, but that needs a long time.
The faster way is vinegar, but that has also some disadvantages.
The surface can become dull and you have to be carefully...

Hello,

I think it really means simply "Solingen". Such marks are often a little misprinted, but normally spelled in the correct manner. So, that is a bit strange. But the letters are looking like...

Hello,

I think the miniature dagger of the belt is not a Kama or Khanjar, I would say it is a Bebut. These daggers are similar to Kamas and Kindjals, but they have a curved blade.

it is an Omani Khanjar and not a Jambiya. Of course that is only a name game because Jambiyas and Omani Khanjars are very similar.

Hello,

I'm not sure if it is damascus, I think the steel is just folded for refinement.
The hilt is made of rhino horn.
Good sword.

With the new photos I would say even the velvet is old.
It has a decorative stitching which is hard to craft and convincingly signs of wear.
The bright colour is no knock-out-criterion.
