A nice Panabas of very rare form.
This light fighting sword measures 73cms from tip to tip with a blade length of 42cms.
The has distal taper from the hilt to the tip and the cutting edge, also narrowing and broadening again at the areas near the tip.
The well forged blade has a profile that shows a belly and a recurved tip that is very rarely seen.
The hilt is palm wood cut to fit the tang and secured with one copper ring at the blade junction and two iron rings further along the hilt.
It appears that another ring was once at the pommel and perhaps also at the end of the tang. The blade and rings are tight.
A rare and well formed Panabas with great age patina at a very good price.
