A release from my personal collections.

A very fine old and complete mid 19th century Burmese Dha.
87cms long in the original rosewood scabbard.
The thick undamaged rayskin wrapped hilt has faceted bronze fittings to the ends and the scabbard also has bronze fittings with losses of four thin straps.
The rather straight but deep bellied blade is 63cms long and of a very high quality. Seven fullers to each side and one to the spine, this Dha is both a swordsmans sword and a status piece signifying wealth within the Burmese state. Still retaining its razor sharp edge, there are both brass and copper inlay to the spine between the hilt and the fuller.
Various markings to the blade with the brass inlay to one side displaying a Burmese name.

A very attractive and deadly fighting sword.
