Hi Motan,

Sorry for the late reply, I had to wait for a day off to take pictures of my shibriya under natural light.

It was bought without provenance in France. As you can see, it is a very flashy, ornate, piece, although it exhibits some features characteristic of shibriya from the early XXth century. It does look fairly new which makes me think that it is a new piece in an older style, or that it is indeed old but was harshly cleaned by it's previous owner.

Regardless, it looks very nice in my opinion and the blade is really interesting.

Let me know what you think of it, and feel free to ask me if you need more information !

(Also, I would be very thankful if someone was able to translate the inscription on the sheath, as I don't read arabic myself.)
