    Persian straight swords

    Dear friends,

    I am really happy to announce that my new article on Persian staright swords is published in the current issue of Classic Arms and Militaria titled:

    Dragons Teeth: The Straight Swords of Persia

    This artcle is based on my new research as well which ill be published in my second book using all linguistic terms describing this type of sword in Iranian manuscript. Above all and very important for the first time you can see four Persian manuscripts depicting Persian straight swords. These are from the Iranian museums and not see outside so far.

    Dear friends,

    The Iranian journalist Mr. Amir Parizad interviewed me for the anniversary of Ferdwosi, the famed Iranian poet. I was among a selected few experts on Iranian history who were interviewed, among them were Ostad Fereydun Joneydi, Dr. Mahmud Bakhtiari, Ostad Adib Borumand, Ms. Giti Purfazel, and Ms. Pariya Mavandi.

    Please see:

    Hello;

    I must congratulate Mr. Manouchehr for this excellent book, I bought it some months ago and I'm very happy with it and with the high quality photographs.
    I must confess that my main interest is ancient pre-islamic Iran (mainly Achaemenid and Sassanian history, warfare and religion) but sadly we have few archaeological stuff of the times compared, for example, with the good amout of Shamshir, as is reflected in the book. But I have enjoyed very much the Shamshir parts too, althoug its not my field and my little knowledge.

    Best regards,

    Khoda Hafez!

    Thank you very much Eneko for your kind words. I really appreciate it. You will surely like my second book as the lexicon will have not only New Persian entries but all arms and armor related terms in Old Persian , Avesta and Middle Persian.

    Kind regards

    Of course, I'm highly interested and I'm waiting for it. There is no such studies for old iranian languages nor pahlavi, in fact there is no modern dictionaries at all, only the old Bartholomae or the Mackenzie's glossary, Dr. Tafazzoli's works and other glossaries of specific works, mainly zoroastrian.
    But a lexicon of arms and armor both of ancient and new persian is simply great. And necessary; in works about achaemenid armies such as Sekunda's or Head's there are linguistical mistakes and inventions (non atestiguated words or expresions, I now remember Sekunda's "amartaka" recostruction for "athanatoi", the Immortals; the critic believe that the "immortals" can be a Herodotean mistake; *anausa for "anusiya" "The folowers, the loyal ones")
    This "amartaka" is of course not atestiguated in Old Persian, there is only a similar form in Avestan but with other completely different meaning and context, the Amesha (spenta) or "angelical" deities.

    Kind regards

    I forgot to mention that in my recent article, you will see three Persian miniatures showing pishqabz in fight. As you know pishqabz s are rarely shown in miniatures. There is also an old pic of Varseh bastani shoing the technique of pishqabz in wrestling.
