Default Russian/Cossack/Shashka Type Sword

Shashka - 31" blade, 36.5" overall - Blade has almost no pitting, what is seen is predominantly oxidation surface staining. Blade is nice and straight with the top half of its length being sharp, including the false edge near the tip. The grip is made of horn with what I believe is brass rivets and lanyard/sword knot hole. The handle is nice and solid with no movement. Cracks in the grip can be seen in one photo, but they are centered and stable, not running the length of the handle. I have found no marks on the piece. It appears to me to be an interesting service sword that would clean up very nicely if one wanted to go any further. The price is $375.00 plus $15.00 shipping in the U.S. Please contact me for international shipping quotes. For interest or questions feel free to PM or email at
