    My thanks to Akooha as well. My friend's father, who is of arabic origin, also stated that it's probably Farsi, but still managed a translation that closely mirrors the one you so kindly provided. ...

    I've pretty much come to the same conclusion as you in that it's Persian. I believe 1347 in the Hijri calendar corresponds to 1928. The sword in the link you sent me (for which I thank you very...

    Thank you Mr. Wilkinson. From what I've heard thus far, the Sykes Fairbairn was probably Indian Army issue and then chromed, perhaps for parade or ceremonial purposes. I'll do some close-ups on the...
  8. Here's another, "What have I got here?" thread

    I recently picked up a lot of 3 blades at an estate sale. The "head-scratcher" for me is this one. It's obviously middle eastern but I have no idea if it's military or civilian ceremonial, what the...
