A fine Bhutanese sword.

This Patag or Patang as they are known in Bhutan, measures 86.5cms long in its scabbard.
Out the sword measures 76.5cms long and has a blade length of 60.5cms.
The hilt is of traditional form with a timber core with fluted grip section. It is wrapped in fine quality ray skin which is bound with waxed or resin covered cord. Each end of the grip is capped in white metal or bai-tong/paktong collars. At the blade is a simple collar where the hilt meets the blade. The pommel is pierced and displays three distinctly different motifs to its three faces. Within the upper portion of the ray skin grip, the outer facing surface has a silver "ball" replacing one of the large skin nodules, an design element I have never seen on these sword types.
The blade is a fine and very sharp hairpin laminated type with a clear return at the tip and differential patterning throughout.
The scabbard is a simple type, typical in form and characteristics to most Bhutanese swords found in today's market place. It has a timber core and fine leather covering with simple tooling to the front raised central ridge. The base is covered in a long brass alloy drag, whilst the throat is further covered in a long thicker protective leather and simple metal throat fitting.

A good rare sword in fine condition throughout.
