Default Kaskara for Comment

This has been passed around as much as my ex-wife. Both are sharp, pointed, deadly and leather-wrapped. But the sword is here to stay and thankfully she is not.

I would welcome your kind comments on my favorite Kaskara, BTW the discoloration you may see is my overhead lighting. The flash did not overpower it.

Hi Bill,

It is a old beautie, different scabbard. If you ever want to pass it on again let me know. (the sword not the ex).

Any chance of finding out what the inscriptions say?

Nice puppy. Usually I'm not into kaskara, unless they have silver hilts and arabic.

That's a beautiful piece and I suspect that hilt IS silver, while the blade appears to be European originally?
Even the leatherwork looks to be of superior quality, so all in all, I;d say that you've got a pretty one there.
Clean that hilt up and I think you'll be amazed at just how attractive that sword is.
Very nice piece.
Mike
