Antique sword, Tibetan, classic form with an old long broad blade with nice distal taper and thick spine.
In its scabbard, this example measures 90 cms, out is it 88.5cms with a 75cm blade that shows clear hairpin laminations.
In untouched condition, this old fighter has the Trefoil pommel that is seen on most Tibetan swords, its hilt construction is of decorative brass, iron, silver wire wrap and green torquoise stone to the centre of the pommel.
For comparative examples of Tibetan swords, please refer to Donald J. LaRocca's work "Warriors of the Himalayas, Rediscovering the Arms and Armor of Tibet".
A hard to find sword at this length.
