Default An Interesting Saif

Hello all,

I acquired this saif a while ago from the net. The pictures that the seller showed me were unclear and showed the crudeness of the sword more then anything. But the price was low, lower then the Ardha saifs which contain lots of silver. Once it arrived here, I was surprised that the blade is of good quality, thicker around the spine and maintains a constantly sharpened edge. The most interesting part of it was the false edge and the very low yelman like feature.

The fittings are newer compared to the blade and is slightly crude especially the scabbard.

Here are the pictures:
