~ 19th Century Interesting Burmese Rawang Dha ~
Here we have a nice little piece, a Dha from Northern Burma in its nice fitted scabbard.
What makes this blade interesting is the concave tip which marks it out as a hua tad/tat khong blade that is carried only by the upper eschelons of the Rawang society and this sword is an evolution of the older Indian Kora sword, not only is it a useful weapon but it retains cultural significance and pays homage to the Rawang heritage.
Overall this is an interesting sword with a good lineage and also it is a good example of native Burmese craftsmanship.
