    19th Century Piha Kaetta Sinhalese Sri Lankan Knife With Ornate Tooled Blade Highlighted With Silver, Brass And Copper & Carved Horn Hilt Inlaid With Silver Decoration. ED 2557 - ED 2557

    The Sinhalese are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group of the island of Sri Lanka. This Piha Kaetta Sinhalese Knife was made sometime in the 19th century (see page499 of A Glossary Of The Construction Decoration & Use Of Arms & Armour by Stone where similar knives are illustrated) . It has the typical 7” single edge blade with panels of ornate tooled decoration highlighted in silver, brass and copper. The blade has just staining consistent with age and is sharp. The knife measures 10 ½” overall and has an undamaged curved horn hilt carved with foliate decoration and mounted with silver & brass escutcheons. The curved brass pommel cap has tooled decoration as does its flamboyant brass finger guard. As is common, the knife is without scabbard. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2557
