Lot 1489 - A198 Arms & Armour - Thursday, 30. September 2021, 05.00 PM
The village of Kubachi in the Dakhadayevsky District, now part of the North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan, has become famous mainly for its centuries-old tradition of silver- and goldsmiths. Among other things, high-grade blades were processed into shashkas and daggers, which were especially popular among the Cossacks, even in neighboring areas such as Chechnya. Sabers with horse-head handles are among the absolute rarities. Cf. Isa Askhabov, Kahamzat Askhabov, Searching for lost Relics, Moscow 2016, p. 100, dagger from 1897, from the same workshop.
