A very rare Moro sword with an exceptional fighting blade.

This Moro sabre measures just under 67cms long with a blade length of 53cms.
The length across the ganja is 13.5cms with is being approx 1cm thick throughout.
The large burl wood pommel is approx 5cms tall, 6cms across and 3.5cms thick. It has a single plug hole to the end that likely had a long tassel of hair secured within. Its original binding has since been replaced with another cord type and has been resin covered in the traditional manner. The hilt ends in a silver ring collar at the blade which supports two straps holding in place Suasa stirups or asang asang.
The rare blade form of half Kris, half sabre type is of exceptional craftsmanship. It is razor sharp and has a Nihinto quality to it with an active Harmon to all cutting edges, a thick elliptical cross section and a hollow forged fuller through the sabre portion of the blade.
The sabre comes with half of its original scabbard, a great addition and template should the new owner wish to restore this and the grip bindings back to their former glory.

A very rare Moro Kris or sabre/sword of a very high quality.
