MHLDRW:

Welcome to the Forum. Thanks for posting this interesting kaskara for discussion. I'm sure Ed Hunley (edster), Iain, and a few others will be along shortly to tell you about what you have. In the meanwhile, you might want to check out Ed's trilogy on the kaskara listed in our Classic Threads post at the top of the Ethnographic Forum Contents page. Ed has also prepared PDF files of these topics that can be found on the Geographic Index page here.

If you are looking for a translation of the writing on the blade we will need larger and better pictures, perhaps taken outside with indirect lighting so that reflections aren't so much of a problem and you don't need to use a flash. I look forward to hearing more about your sword.

Ian.
