Crimean War Russian Pioneer's Tesak Sword
Model 1834, sold
In good condition, a Crimean War era Russian Pioneer / Engineer's
Tesak Sawback Hanger Sword Model 1834.
Almost certainly a British Crimenan War trophy / battlefield bring
back. The sawback section of the blade was actually used as a saw,
not for gruesome combat.
The 19 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the brass grip
/ hilt. The ribbed hilt with some knocks and wear but good.
An awesome item at an awesome price; £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference number AF62 (1135). Further / full sized
pictures available upon request.
