Victorian Era North West Frontier pesh-kabz / Khyber Armour Piercing Indian / Afghan Knife With Polished Horn Grips & Scabbard. ED 2152 - ED 2152
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. It has a heavy 6 ¾” single edged curved T section blade (10 ¾” overall). The blade has a sharp cutting edge & narrows to a pin sharp armour piercing point. The blade has staining consistent with age but no rust just a couple of minor nicks to the cutting edge. It has a full tang with integral finger guard. The scales are polished horn. One scale has a small 5mm gouge only visible on close inspection and both scales are totally secure, fastened to the tang by rivets. The knife is complete with its original leather hide covered wood scabbard. The leather of the scabbard which has a stitched seam is undamaged. Price includes UK delivery. ED 2152
