    ~ Early 20th Century Tuareg Short Sword ~


    Here we have a very nice ceremonial sword from Africa.

    This is an unusual weapon made and sold by the Tuareg, appearing to be a larger form of the Telak or forearm dagger.

    The sword is made from white metal (presumably unhallmarked silver) and polished steel, heavily decorated with an ornate pommel and quillons.

    The blade and centre of the crossguard are decorated with flowing geometric patterns typical with African blades.

    The blade does not appear to have been sharpened.

    The sword comes with a scabbard made of wood and covered in white metal, decorated in the same fashion as the blade and worked leather decorated with geometric lines.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 15 inches (38 cm) long.

    The sword is 25 inches (64 cm) long.

    The sword is 6.5 inches (17 cm) at its widest point.

    The sword weighs 1.03 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in good condition with a solid construction and clear decoration.

    The scabbard is in good condition with some wear to the leather.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £15 or the sword can be collected from our shop....Read full description
