A good native made example of a Mandingo sword of Liberia.

This example measures from tip to tip just under 92cms with a blade length of 75cms.

The hilt is a carved timber example with losses at the end.
Either end of the hilt is wrapped and capped with iron sheet that carries line decoration.
The blade is sandwiched between layers of rivited steel bolstering at the forte. The blade is strong and supple with a full needle point and shows to be of native construction.
All parts are tight and the steel carries a good dark age patina.
