I'm very eager to know if anyone can lend any expertise in telling me more about this blade. Extra credit goes to the lucky person who can translate, or even identify the language of, the writing on the scabbard.
Please forgive me for reviving this wonderfully aged thread, but I thought it was too close to the Omani Shamshir to start a new thread. If that is not the case I shall do so.
