Eastern European short sword as favored in the Caucasus. 30 1/2" length with 24 3/8" rough forged blade. Two piece wood scale grips with blade facet and rasp finish. Shows great age, the blade surface rusted and the grips with glossy patina (one cracked). From a group of similar crude, but honest old examples which we sold many years ago. This is the largest by far and kept back for that reason. One of the very few items about which we have been unable to discover useful information.
