    Hello,

    Is this a shamshir grip mounted on a european blade,no traces of markings
    Grip is made of horn so could this be dated to a period?

    Thank you

    I dont think horn can be attributed to any particular period.

    I could be wrong but it rather looks an assemblage of parts to me.
