0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false FINE INSCIBED SUDANESE KASKARA BROADSWORD Please see my other items I’ll be listing on ebay this week and the next few weeks. This is an authentic old antique Kaskara broadsword with inscriptions on both sides of the blade. The overall length is 39-3/4” The blade length is 34-1/2” The blade width is 1-3/4” wide. The overall length in the scabbard is 41” (with the tip of the scabbard missing) This is a very large and high quality Sudanese Kaskara sword with a wide, flexible blade that is etched with Thuluth inscription (Islamic calligraphy). The blade is sharp with a great dark patina, showing its great age(please see the pictures). The original edge has the same patina as the rest of the blade. The tip is intact and undamaged. The cross guard is brass and very dark with age. The hilt is wood with leather wrap that is very dry, with some of the wrap missing towards the cross guard. The scabbard is wood covered in leather that is dry. The tip of the scabbard is broken or worn away with use and the seam of the leather where it was stitched is splitting about half way up the side. This is a great example of a true Kaskara, NOT one of the smaller ones sold for the tourist market. Please see my other items I’ll be listing on ebay this week. I hope the pictures can answer any questions, if not please email me with the item # and/or description and I will try to answer any questions or send you more pictures. Shipping and handling will be $12.95. I will accept PayPal (preferred), cashiers checks, and personal checks. Items paid with PayPal will be shipped within 2 working days, all others will ship after payment has cleared (personal checks may take up to 10 days). For international purchases, payment with PayPal is required and shipping will be actual cost to that country (usually between $50-$60 US). Cost may be high due to the length of this sword.
