18th Century Arabian Shamshir with triple
fullered blade, sold
In good condition, a triple fullered short 18th Century Arab Shamshir,
A rare chance to own an authentic 18C Arabian / Persian shamshir
sabre for a very low price. The triple fullered blade means either
Syrian made or European import (as was common), 18th Century; I
suspect the blade is European. A scarce short version of this much
sought after sabre, the 70cm blade being perhaps ideally suited
for close hand-to-hand combat.
The blade has a few nicks to the cutting edge, firm in the hilt.
The typical two part wooden grip with brass backpiece, star insets
and silvered wire bound ferrule area. Only £? (too late, now
sold) . Item Ref: 783 - Tube 6. Further / full sized images available
