Indochina / Burmese Dha (aka Dah) Sword With Tropical Wood Hilt & Scabbard. Sn 18115:8 - 18115:8

Dha (also spelled dah) is the Burmese word for "knife." The term dha is conventionally used refer to a wide variety of knives and swords used by many people across Indochina, especially present-day Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Yunnan, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Dha vary considerably according to locality but they share a few features that define them apart from other weapons and tools of the area. These features are a round cross-section grip, a long, gently curving blade (sometimes upward, other times downward in the direction of use) with a single edge, and no guard. This is an original Indochina / Burmese Dha sword and scabbard. The sword has a typical broad steel single edged blade which is curved and measures 23” length (29” overall). The blade is sharp and has just small areas of light staining. There are no maker or date marks on the blade. The typical handle is tropical wood, with brass ferrule at the pommel and flared ribbed copper and brass ferrule where the hilt meets the blade, flared to provide a finger guard. The blade is secure in the handle. The scabbard consists of 2 sections of tropical wood bound together by wire bands. The centre of the scabbard is bound with red cord faded to pink with age. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18115:8
