And on the 8th day of the Swordvent Calendar, we come to the Caucasus, these two pieces have been on my site this year and have both been reduced to make space for more stock. 

The plainer piece is rather interesting as it has a military-style scabbard extremely similar to an Italian Carcano bayonet and the other is just a stunning example of ivory carving and gilt on steel.
