Description
 
Exceptionally rare Sudanese short sword. Blade a whisker over 16inches and displaying a very unusual maker mark. (Research ongoing)
Sword is solid. Leather binding is perfect.
Some light pitting and rust.
I have handled dozens of kaskaras and this is the smallest that retains true crusader form.
The scabbard is great. All straps are intact and unbroken. Sword unusually fits all the way into the scabbard.
Guaranteed 19th century.
A lot of thought went into this dagger. Perhaps a warrior that preferred fighting 'old school' European style, with both a left hander and long sword.
Very very cool.
