  1. @fredk @chuck123wapati Awesome, thank you! I will leave this thread open for now in case someone has some more insights, but you have been extremely helpful. The knife carrier theory is seeming pretty solid. @Sinbad395 Thank you for presenting that possibility. I thought this looked pretty unique and interesting, so I bought it; but I will admit I was a little out of my depth. Thank you again for the help!
  2. @fredk Thank you. And thank you for the origin possibilities. It isn't that large, so they would need to be relatively narrow-bladed knives. But if it were crafted by someone with a specialty in mind where wider knives wouldn't be necessary, it could make sense.
  3. @Sinbad395 Thank you for the reply! That does feel like a real possibility. When I first saw it I thought it resembled the censers that are used to burn incense in a religious ceremony, but the slits don't really seem convenient for that. A knife sheath does seem to make more sense.
  4. The images I took were a bit large, so the forum will only let me upload the one. Thank you all again for your help!
  5. Thank you so much for the replies! Sorry for the links. The forum would not let me upload files before (likely because I did not have an account yet). Here is the full photo of the item.
  6. Hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me identify this rather unique (to me) leather-crafted object I've acquired. It is a reverse cone hanging from a strap with six slits in the top. Attempts to use Google Lens just gave me a variety of studded leather items, none of which even approximated a match. If anyone here would be kind enough to give me some insight into what it is I have, I would be very grateful. I have provided links to photos of the object on my OneDrive account below.
