A genuine example of a true fighting Khyber Knife.
The thick hilt comprises of a two piece ribbed horn grip section and faceted steel bolsters.
The blade is of a strong armour piercing form with “T” section spine and reinforced edge. Interestingly the blade features two small rectangular patches of Wootz steel presumably covering a flaw which appeared during polishing.
In excellent condition overall.
