MASSIVE, Early 20th Century Pesh-Kabz Choora / Khyber Afghan Knife / Sword With Polished Horn Scales, Fullered T- Section Blade & Rare To Find Original Scabbard. Sn 15992 - 15992
The Pesh-Kabz or Choora is a type of Perso-Afghan knife (see page 494 of Stone's book 'A Glossary Of Arms & Armour'). The knives were typically used a a thrusting weapon, however their heavy blades also possessed 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 centred 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 an excellent, massive example of the pesh-kabz / choora form knife made some time in the early 20th Century. It has a heavy 23 ½” single edged blade (29” overall). The blade has fullers and is 2 ¼” wide at its broadest. The blade is clean, sharp and undamaged. It has the correct curved pommel and finger guard. The pommel has a small fixed lanyard lug.

The scabbard has hand tooled geometric decoration and a large conical steel chape with ball end. The scabbard has some areas of surface wear consistent with age. The knife fits the open top scabbard snugly. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15992
