Nimcha, literally

I was quite excited to acquire this sword, as it is very much like the one shown in "The Arms and Armour of Arabia" on p.10, fig. 2.1. It has the same blade profile, with a horn karabela hilt and a...

This looks European to me. My guess would be a Victorian interpretation of a 15th century war hammer?

The fittings look recent and poorly made to me :shrug:. I think I may have seen this item on eBay. Personally, I would not want it.
