Hello Battara,
Can you help me out with the pommel style? may be newer to the blade?
The handle is consist two separate tubes, lower is made of bronze, and the top is brass. Center ring is silver and the top choker ring is bronze. The blade was stamped with a Chinese character.

The Chinese character was a sign of quality blade made by a Chinese smith.

The ferrule - does look more recent. Will look up the pommel style and post anything I find.
