A rarely seen Chinese sabre.

This Chinese sword is just under 85cms long with a blade length just under 70cms.
From the mid to late 19th century, this facted blade sabre is of a type not commonly seen.
The hilt comprises of two piece brass pommel, one piece timber grip pierced for a lanyard, a brass collar and a brass 'tsuda' like disk guard.
The blade profile drops forward and gently curves upwards to a hatchet tip.
To both sides of the forte are old chiseled Chinese characters not yet translated.
The blade has a couple of knocks near the tip as expected with use and age.

A good solid old Chinese fighting sword of unusual form.
