    I agree - looks like a WW1 bayonet fitted with a new handle.

    bcullen They are all perfect.

    I'll second that. The curve of the handle gives a khurki like effect to the weapon. The sword like characteristics suggest that it came from around the 1800's.

    the blade looks to me like a scottish dirk but the handle if it's horn it must have come from africa since thats the only place I've seen that spiral shape but I could be wrong.
    hope that helps
