Default Blade identification needed on Moroccan nimcha sword.

Blade identification needed on Moroccan nimcha sword.
This Nimcha has a rhino horn hilt
May be a member could tell me from which kind of European saber could come this Nimcha blade.

Probably German blade See # 9 at http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ighlight=NIMCHA for the same crosses and moon mark.

Usually, such blades with 3 rather narrow fullers are of local manufacture.
It also seems to me that just at the level of stamps the fullers become somewhat curved: heated for stamping?
Kind of too crude for the Germans:-)

Hello Ariel,

as a German I'm with you. It is a well known fact, that Kaskara-blades for example were manufactured in Solingen and exported to Africa. But they never had such poorly shaped fullers, never, even not in wartimes.

Yes that is possible although what if this was straight originally and was hammered into a curved shape.

There is however, no unsharpened section at the forte supporting the idea of a local blade and I tend to agree on the crosses and Dukari moon styles being local...

Well, I have seen a lot of "locals" and to me this blade is not local.

Cerjak is it possible to know the length of your blade?
Thanks
