Thanks for your compliments, Lady. To talk of rifles, you remind me of AK47, the famous or infamous Kalashnikov, which has been very popular in our area back in Pakistan. I never got a chance to try it, but I have heard a lot about it. Have you ever fired a gun in your life? The idea of women doing such dangerous stuff has always appealed to my fancy. I like women in uniforms, or doing Martial arts etc.
Yes, actually! Your beard has made it very true-to-life. Thank you very much! :) Now I'm rather filling them with rifles, but sabers are rather a beautiful part of history... as an abstraction, when not used... You're welcome, and thank you for a friendly conversation!
Well, my name is Waseem, which is an Arabic word that means handsome. I really value your comments. Thanks indeed for such remarks.
Well thanks a lot. Yes you are right, these costumes do have an air of majesty. I was very delighted to put on such a Kingly attire. And probably it suited me because of my bearded outlook. Well my knowledge of swords and scepters is also very limited. Anyhow good luck with filling of your cognitive gaps ;)
A beautiful name you have, by the way. It sounds dignified. At least in the sphere of those images and assotiations that fill my mind.
You're welcome! It's majestic. Before I thought such costumes were a fruit of imagination of Eastern fairytales books illustrators or miniature painters... Surrealistically good assuming a classical portrait. :) I don't differ sabers and swords well. With European still it's a little better - what is straight like a stick, it is a sword, if it's short, it is Roman... :) Hafts are hard to define for me, though. With curving swords and sabers a full gap in my cognitive process starts. Even with Russian Cossak steel.
I believe it is a traditional Saber probably used by Turks in olden times. I got this pic taken on my visit to historic Topkapi Palace, Istanbul, Turkey. Thanks for appreciation.
Very cool. Especially the sword. Or this is a saber?
