Xix 19c Antique Georgian Russian Caucasian Cossack Sword Qama Dagger Kindjal:
For sale this beautiful antique silver Dagger originally from North Caucasus.
Rare, circa 1st half of 1800's because the blade bears master's mark in hexagon shape similar to the one that appears in the book of weaponry of Caucasus "Оружие народов Кавказа". Please refer to the closeup pictures on this page.There are some type of initials within the mark in Arabic or Persian language but since I don't no Arabic language I can read what it says.
Comes from local family's inheritance from Republic of Georgia, former USSR.
The Kindjal has horn hilt, mounting pins hold all the pieces well together so it feels quite solid when you hold it in the hand. Leather bound scabbard is all original with no restoration and is in the condition as you would expect from the item that is this old. The main material used for decoration is silver with 84 mark on it. It also shows Russian initials. Has two fullers on both sides.
Only slight signs of repair that I can notice: One of the silver pins that hold horn hilt has been replaced - the lower one and there's a soldering mark on the bottom silver tip. I guess that's it. I can't notice anything else regarding repairs. On lower note I would mention one chip on top tip of the horn hilt, nothing drastic and small rips or cuts on the side of the leather because of its age. Also one small dent on the silver holder I have included higher resolution images in the bottom. They should give a buyer clear idea about the item offered here.
Please take close look at the pictures provided. Even though I always do my best to describe every item with maximum accuracy, it is the buyer's discretion to do research and make sure he/she is buying the item with confidence.
Dagger this old become hard to come across so consider it as an investment and expect its value to go up as time passes.
Overall length of this kindjal with the scabbard is 18.1/4 inches (47 cm) long.
Blade with the hilt is about 16.5" or 42cm long.
Bare blade's length is about 12.5" or 31.5 cm).
