Description:

Measuring 10 3/4 inches overall. The blade is 6 1/4 inches beginning with a 2 inch long ricasso with light gold koftgari accents before expanding to a thickness of 3/8ths of an inch and splitting into a set of three wavy tines with a diamond cross section. A fine Damascus pattern is present on the entire blade. The hilt shows over 95% coverage of floral and vine pattern gold koftgari and has an untranslated symbol on each side of the blade. Similar decoration is present on the throat, tip, and edges of the iron sheath with additional blackened silver backgrounds around the gold.

Rating Definition:

Fine. A small amount of spotting is present on the blade which has a strong Damascus pattern. The koftgari is solid overall and a brown patina on the uncovered areas of the grip. The sheath is good with traces of an old inner lining and mild spotting.
