This is a beautiful example of a kindjal dagger with walrus ivory grips and silver mounts that dates to around 1830, made during the Russian occupation of Poland. It is dated 1832 on the reverse upper mount and has initials carved in as well, probably that of the owner or the person who snagged it. It dates to the era of the military uprising in Warsaw and while appearing decorative, this dagger is fully functional as a weapon and extremely sharp and sturdy. The silver mounts have enamel inlay as well. The only minor flaw is that at some point in time the tip of the blade was broken as shown in images.
