32" length with 24 3/8" broad d.e. blade decorated with bands and borders of punch work with four flowers to the forte each side. The center with a long reptile figure presumed to the the Nile crocodile. While appearing to be monolithic pierced work, the reptile is in fact, made separately and inset with such precision that it is undetectable. Purpose unknown: It is removable, perhaps interchangeable? As the Nile crocodile was sacred to the Mahdists, it was perhaps removed for votive purposes. The hilt is of fine quality befitting such an esteemed object with spirally fluted bone grip flanked by guard and pommel built up of horn laminations. Conical horn "skull crusher" terminal. Fine condition for the period with slight shrinkage to the horn.
