Charay Khyber Knife

special price

This type of Charay knife (also known as a Charas, Churea and a Salawaryatagan), was first used in Indo-Persia, but quickly spread across the near east, deriving its common name, “Khyber” Knife, from its famed use against the British by the native tribes of the Khyber Pass area. It is still used in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Northern India today. The scabbard is worn thrust, unsecured, in a number of positions under a belt, with blades ranging from 14" to 30". Our offering has an aged finish on the entire knife and scabbard, including the worked and painted brass and buffalo horn grip on a full tang profile with the customary ring at the end of the grip that is often used for a wrist tie-down. The “T” shaped blade has a raised spine along the length of the blade, which allows the blade to be thin to hold a very sharp edge yet remain extremely strong. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.

A BIG Knife!!
Really more a sword type thing. A blade heavy chopper...goat soup anyone??

But nicely made and looks old.
From: William, May 03, 2015
balance and weight was very good,but blade and overall look was not really what I expected, was not very happy with it overall.
From: Daniel, April 02, 2015
Beautiful, well made, and balanced very close to the hilt, which makes it an artistic and very fast blade. I've see other blade of the kind in Afghanistan, but none are close to the quality of this product.
From: Charles, January 19, 2015
This is an excellent blade.  Well crafted and well balanced.  It is a very quick blade for its reach and the fit is one of the best of my Windlass blades.

Our offering is of the form found in Persia and India and is worn at the stomach under a sash or belt. Beautiful solid hardwood grip with decorative rondels. Hardwood scabbard covered in thin black leather with nickel tip.

Marquise Boarding Axe

#600980
Boarding axes were used as far back as Viking times. Our replica is a French design, similar to many also found in Sweden. It is called the Hache du Bord or Hache Abordage naval boarding axe. This model has long fore and aft langets, securing the axe to the shaft, while there is an extra langet acting as both a belt or baldric hook and a protective shield for the wood against a cutlass thrust. The head is hand forged and the hardwood shaft has a dark black stain.
