C1860 Victorian Era North West Frontier pesh-kabz / Khyber Armour Piercing Indian / Afghan Knife With Polished Bone & Buffalo Horn Grips, Etched Blade & Scabbard. ED 268 - ED 268
The pesh-kabz or peshkabz is a type of Perso-Afghan knife designed to penetrate chain mail armour. The word is also spelled pesh-quabz or pish-ghabz and means "fore-grip" in the Persian language. The knife is typically used as a thrusting weapon, however, the wide ‘T’ section blade also possesses considerable slicing performance, and as such may also be used effectively with slashing or cutting strokes. During the British colonial rule in India, the British frequently referred to all Afghan blades of this pattern collectively as "Afghan knives" or "Khyber knives", after the Khyber Pass that marked the transition from British India to the nation of Afghanistan. In India, manufacture of the pesh-kabz was centered in the northern city of Bhera, now part of Pakistan. During the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars, the pesh-kabz was frequently the weapon of choice for finishing off wounded British and colonial troops, as the Afghan tribesmen did not take prisoners except for use as hostages. This is a very good original example of the pesh-kabz made in the Victorian era C1860. It has a heavy 9" single edged T section blade (13” overall). The 1 ¾” wide blade with single razor sharp cutting edge narrows to a pin sharp armour piercing point. The blade has staining consistent with age but no rust and is etched on both sides with crude foliate images. One side has the naïve representation of a male figure and an elephant. It has a full brass tang, curved pronged pommel and finger guard decorated with hand tooled geometric designs. The scales are formed from pieces of polished bone and buffalo horn with hand punched decoration. The scales have wear consistent with age and use. The knife is complete with horn lined leather hide covered scabbard the leather of the scabbard which has a stitched seam is undamaged. Price for this great historic piece includes UK delivery.

The Imperial German Navy (Kaiserliche Marine) was created at the time of the formation of the German Empire.
