Excellent c.1800 Arab Shamshir Wide-bladed Fighting Sword
A good example of a c.1800 Arabic Shamshir fighting sword with steel hilt and marine ivory grips. The fine, wide blade is of substantial size and would have been a very effective fighting sword, especially whilst mounted on a horse and used as a slashing weapon. It comprises a well tempered, double-fullered and curved blade. The plain, polished steel crossguard has heart-shaped quillon finials. The sword also comes complete with its leather, copper and silver mounted (chape) scabbard. Good examples of 19th Century Arabic shamshir swords are becoming extremely hard to find and prices have begun to rise steeply in the market as buyers, particularly from the Middle East, reclaim both their military artifacts but also have a keen eye on a good investment piece that can only increase in value - this is a good example at a competitive price.
Condition of the Sword
In excellent shape for its age and with a clean blade - small repair to leather scabbard.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 31 inches (37 inches overall).
