So the story was that this was originally taken as a souvenir by a German, and then subsequently brought back by an American. I gave the tale little credence for fear it might have been made last year in Pakistan.

Any idea when it might have been made?

That may be among the most information-rich and well put-together responses to photos I've posted that I've ever gotten on this forum.

Thank you for taking the time to do this, Einzel!

The pommel is slightly loose on this. Seems like the pommel nut has unscrewed just a touch, but it looks like it requires a special prong-shaped tool to tighten it. Anyone have any tips on a substitute tool I can use to tighten this thing up again?
