Default A Massive and All Business Old Manding Sword

Here is a very unusual Manding sword, likely from the first half of the 20th century. It is rather plain, especially its scabbard, by Manding standards. It is the largest Manding sword I have ever handled.

The blade is well made, may be European, and feature three shallow fullers to the forte, similar to some other swords from the region. It is razor sharp!

The hilt is tooled leather over wood, with a reptile skin grip and an unusually large brass pommel.

The sword has a heavy, no thrills, baldric of leather.

The scabbard is thicker and heavier than most Manding scabbards and is finished with applied tooled and pierced leather panels in brown and black.

Comments welcomed!

Overall length: 43.33in.
Blade length: 35in.
BLade width at the forte: 1.5in.
