A very nice complete, well preserved Sudanese Kaskara, first half of the 20th century
Overall just under 97 cms in the sheath, 95cms out with an 83cms blade.
Complete with scabbard and suspension, this example shows a well marked blade to both sides with an Islamic cartouche and script to one side. It has a narrow fuller to each side and the blade's edges remain unsharpened up to this point where the fuller ends. The remainder of the blade shows a nice bevelled cutting edge. The blade does show light staining and could benefit from a clean.
The scabbard and fittings remain in healthy conditon.
