    ~ Kaskara Egyptian Broadsword c1870 (or earlier) ~


    A heavy Egyptian Kaskara broadsword with scabbard. The double edged blade on his sword has been carefully etched over its entirety with Egyptian Islamic scripture.

    The sword has a simple crossbar and the grip and pommel are bound in brown leather.

    The scabbard is of a wooden construction covered in a brown leather and stitched along the center. There are two leather wrapped lozenge shaped decorations to the scabbard possibly for a strap to be attached.

    Many of these swords were brought back from the Sudan conflicts.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The sword on its own measures 43 inches (109cm). The blade measures 38 inches (97cm). In its scabbard the piece measures 43 inches (109cm). The piece weighs 1.17kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in decent condition for its age and type. The blade has darkened with age but the etching remain clear. The blade is firm in its mount with a good edge. The leather binding on the hilt is overall fine but has shrunk with age so it sits a little loose on the grip. The crossbar is also a little loose as a result of the binding.


    The scabbard has sustained some age damage but still contains the blade well. The leather has become dry and flaked off in places revealing the wood underneath. There is a large chip to the wood at the end of the scabbard which exposes the blade tip.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage costs £25 or the sword can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
