Persian, 18th century and not wootz?! :shrug:

I may agree with the Persian attribution but definitely not 18th century.

Both, blade and hilt. 20th century.

Wow, very interesting find!

To me, it looks like an English broadsword from the early 19th century.

Unfortunately, it is badly in need of major restauration work.

Interesting that the moment I saw it, I also thought that is Persian.

Why?

Simply because it looked so much alike others I saw in Persian museums.

The size, the shape of the hilt and also the...

Wow, what a beauty!
And the blade is fantastic. It seems to have the characteristic "Indian ricasso." Pretty sure made in Northern India. :)

Well, I learned something new then. :)

No problem as I did not buy the sewars for having rhino hilts, but because I liked them.

In fact they weren't even advertised as being with rhino hilts. It...

Hello Detlef,

It would be very difficult to make photos good enough so one can see the rhino horn structure as I do not have a good camera.

Will give it a try as soon as it will be a sunny day....

Hello Detlef,

While some Tumbuk-lada may have wider blades, there are many with blades indiscernable from those of sewars. Yet, they still are Tumbuk-lada because in this case, it is the hilt that...

In my opinion this is a Sewar, not a Tumbuk-lada. Tumbuk-lada have a significantly thicker hilt with a flater pommel.

I think it might be rhino. Rhino horn was fairly frequently used for sewars. I...

Maybe a gut feeling, maybe just the tired look of the blade make me think this might be a 17th century dagger.

Very nice piece!

sabre M 1869 for cavalry troopers

A sabre M 1869 for cavalry troopers was the description in the auction.
But where from? Austria? Germany? :shrug:
And the manufacturer: Jung (???) :shrug:
Any additional information is welcomed!

As with regards to the blades size/weight,...
