Thumbs up

Thanks for sharing these! Can you post full photos of the blades, as well as some measurements?

What is the provenance for these?

Are the handles silver or white metal?

Stunning! Thank you for sharing. Is there a special name for a blade with that kind of elaborate spine? They are beautiful.

Beautiful pieces. Very nice condition.

K.Bancha regarding a name, I'm curious as well if these have a more specific name. I know in English, I've heard them called a Scythe or Halberd . In Thai, I've heard them called a Ngow/Ngaw Sun...but that just means "short polearm"

Thank you for sharing.

Is it known if both the blade and silverwork was done in CM? or else where
