    ~ Late 19th Mahadist War Era Century Sudanese Kaskara Sword ~


    The Kaskara was a type of sword characteristic of Sudan, Chad, and Eritrea.

    Similar swords were used in the Mahadist British colonial war of of 1881-1899.

    While most surviving examples are from the 19th century, the type is believed to have originated around the early 14th century and may represent a localized survival of the straight, double-edged medieval Arab sword.

    The kaskara was worn horizontally across the back or between the upper arm and thorax.

    The blade of the kaskara is quite long, very flexible, double edged and with an Ancient Roman ‘Pompey’ style tip.

    The grip is made of wood covered with young crocodile skin (or similar small size reptile foot skin).

    The fullered blade is decorated with an etched Sudanese text.

    The hexagonal cross shaped hand guard is made of brass.

    The sword comes with an old invoice/certificate of provenance dated 8th Aug 1976. The certificate was written by the Hermitage Antiquities.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 34.5 inches (88 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 40.25 inches (102 cm).

    It weighs 900 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in good condition for its age.

    The blade developed minimum surface rust.

    The etchings are clearly visible.

    The grip is slightly loose due to the wood frame age.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage is £24 or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
