Default Massim sword club

followed me home.

523 grams. 24.5 in. long. 3.25" wide at tip. roughly 0.5 " thick blade, thicker at grip 7/8" at the pommel. carving has been 'limed' and is slightly off white. undulations from tool, fairly well polished out but still evident on blade, more so in grip/pommel.smooth surface thru out. snake heads either side of blade have 'slightly different 'faces'.

Of all my collection the Massim pieces are my favorites. A late club but very nice indeed.

won this one on ebay, got a good bargain.
more carving, looks like it's been de-limed.
