I doubt that the fittings are from silver. Pommel seems to be from bone. All comments are welcome, special age guesses.


Here pictures of the gunong after it has received some maintenance. The fittings seems to be from (coin?) silver and are very well worked. I haven't etched the blade until now.
I think that this piece is post WWII. I am unsure if this is a very well worked early tourist example or worked for real use, what you think?
