**RARE** Victorian Indian North West Frontier Afghan Banochie Tribe Folding Lohar 'Crow Bill' Fighting Axe With Decorated Polished Bone Grip & Etched Blade. Sn 18575 - 18575
The history of the lohar is very obscure. They are rarely found outside Afghanistan. The Lohar is a pick-type weapon from the Banochie, a tribe in Afghanistan living near the Khyber Pass (see page 149 of Stones book ‘A Glossary Of Arms & Armour). Lohars were used with great effect against the British Cavalry units during the early Afghan wars. The word “lohar” means “smith” or “metal smith”. This lohar is in the Victorian era form. The lohar is sometimes called a crow bill. Each man makes his own and has his own individual decoration patterns, although all are similar. This example has bone grips, 6” crow bill shaped blade with naïve native hand tooled decoration and scalloped section back edge and measures 14” overall when open. The grips and brass works are decorated overall in the distinctive Afghan style, with colourful birdseye decoration to the grips. The birdseye talisman is the most prominent motif found on these weapons. The lohar was made for fighting and replaced the sword among the Khyber tribes that used them. There are several variations of lohar. This lohar is a folding version and was intended for concealment. Despite its age the iron and brass mechanism works smoothly to open and lock the blade. Lohars were considered a prized status symbol within tribe families. The price for this rare piece includes UK delivery. Sn 18575

This Samurai side arm has been assessed by UK Japanese sword expert Bill Tagg. A copy of his hand written notes with illustrations accompany the weapon. Extracts from the notes include “Hachiwara were parrying weapons carried by Samurai carrying out Police duties in the late Edo period. I have seen them described as helmet & Sword breakers. They were a defensive weapon used by police to disarm drunken, out of control Samurai without harming or killing them. On all 4 sides of the bar are worn / indistinct name & date. They often had them. Like Masamune done as a tribute . Mid to late Edo 1700-1800. Hard to date exactly looks been remounted for export in carved wood mounts with Dragon in red lacquer”. Bill refers to a ‘male’ copper retaining pin missing. This has been replaced. In his drawings of the blade he states “cutting edge is 11 ½”. Total length in mount 19”. He describes the thickest part of the blade near hilt as being 13mm thick. He observes Sujikai File marks on the tang. The blade is securely wedged in the hilt and to avoid possible damage to the wood tsuba we have not attempted to remove it.
