Pichaq Knife from Bukhara, Uzbekistan - 14020
This knife is coming from Bukhara, Uzbekistan, also known as Pichaq. Mid 20 C. 8 inches blade, carved wood handle with styled bird shaped pommel set with colored inserts. Typical Bukhara embroidered colorful fabric scabbard and belt attachment, with a second compartment for a small knife (now missing). Very good condition. The knife and scabbard probably were not born together but fits well and aged about the same. Very interesting set.
