Khyber Knives?

I have enjoyed several of your videos. I have read a great of Victorian era military history, and I especially like your work when it focuses on that era.

One weapon that Queen Victoria's soldiers would have faced frequently is the Khyber knife, which someone once described as a cleaver with a point. In the famous painting of the last stand of the 44th Regiment of Foot at Gandamack, the encircling Afghans can be seen holding their native blades.

Not sure if you have any of these weapons in your personal collection, or have looked into the way the Khyber knife was used in combat.

I would be interested in a video from you on the subject of the Khyber Knife.
