A release from my personal collections.

A mid 19th century Burmese Dha of very fine quality.
This nice fighting sword is 82cms long in the original rosewood scabbard. The thick undamaged rayskin wrapped hilt has decorative silver fittings to the ends and the scabbard also has fine uncleaned silver fittings with losses of one strap.
The nicely curved blade blade still retains its razor sharp edge and is 59cms long. The blade broadens at the belly and is of a very high quality and is almost completely covered in silver inlay to both sides and the thick spine at the forte.
This Dha is both a swordsmans sword and a status piece signifying wealth within the Burmese central state.

A very fine quality and attractive and deadly fighting sword complete with its original scabbard.
