Alamang for discussion
7 Attachment(s)
I have bought this Alamang with horn handle and low grade silver fittings, the blade is fine laminated. 59,5 cm inside the sheat, blade 42,5 cm and 9 mm thick at the base. Your comments are very appreciated.

So bad? :(

Not bad at all, IMHO. :)
Are you sure the hilt is horn and not bone?
It's hard to see on a picture and it could traditionally be both.

Hello Michael,

thank's!:) Hilt look like horn from the pattern and from colour (brown); there are bone with brown colour? What do you think how old it could be?

Nice piece.

Thank's. I think that it is horn, I am sure that it isn't wood.
