Salaams All... However I forgot to add something ... The Nimcha.

Please see http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...=Charles+Buttin and in particular #9. With the main early Sri Lankan traders being Moors and the tantalising similarities as pointed to by the late Anthony North between Nimcha and Kastane members perhaps need to view the broader picture. The more ornate Nimcha hilts look even more remarkably like the Kastane....
