19C Long Asian Peshkabz / Afghan Khyber Knife,
Horn Grip, Sold
A late 19th Century Long Central Asian Peshkabz / Afghan Khyber
Knife with Horn Grip and original scabbard in overall good condition.
This a rare long bladed version of almost certainly an Afghan Khyber
Knife (rather than a Central Asian Peshkabz, though the two are
often the same thing). Notice how the knife is almost completely
covered by the scabbard / sheath.
The 23 inch steel blade has rust spots which could be removed as
the blade is very solid. The blade is firm in the hilt. The horn
grip with worked brass surrounds has a few chips. The scabbard /
sheath is sound but aged and splitting in places and with some damage.
The knife sheathes and draws well enough still.
A lovely example of a long Khyber knife; yours for only £?
(too late, now sold). Please quote item reference M07 (1237). Further
/ full sized pictures available upon request.
