Default Image of an Indian warrior with a dagger khanjarli.

Dear forum participants. Does any of you know image of an Indian warrior with a dagger khanjarli.

Hi Mahratt.

Great picture! I enlarged it a bit and adjusted the contrast to show the hilt of his dagger more clearly. In answer to your question, no I have not seen another picture with someone wearing a khanjarli.

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