Mystery Dagger

Postby Jackalope » Tue Jul 04, 2017 6:14 am

I recently acquired this dagger. I have no idea of where it was made or how old it it. The wood handles have some ornate carvings as well as the wood scabbard. The scabbard is also wrapped with some type of string or thread. It appears to be pretty old. There are no markings on the blade. Is it Persian?

I believe that is a phillipino "minasbad" sword .

It looks a really nice high quality example .I cant see properly as i am on my phone but is the blade damascus or watered steel ?
The hilt looks beautifully carved as does the scabbard it looks to a great shaped blade for both work and defence /attack.
Nice blade i would love to own an example.
A pocture of a few modern takes on your knife.

All the best
