Hello SÚverin,

I think it's a penai! But a very nice one, love the carvings at the scabbard. Very nice sword.

Hello Detlef,

Thank you for the correction. I have never really understand the difference between Sumara and Penai. Whith the word "penai" I found all the handle variation on internet.
Sumara is only for handle with a big "V" ?

Not always, have for example a look to post #13, the beautiful examples from Michael, the one without scabbard is Sumara. There are different handle forms, look also #18, the statement from Michael.
And you find the answer for the query in your new thread!

Detlef
