    Schamshir ?

    Hi ,
    I know this shamshir is from the 17th century.
    But what I do not know is Persia or Ottoman.
    Perhaps Mr. Manoucher can help?

    Persian blade for sure and most probably Persian hilt as well... albeit both can be from the beginning of 18th century as well... my guess.

    Good catch!

    Marius You may be right early 18 century is possible ??
    But the chagrin leather-based handle speaks more for the 17th century.
    Also the angle of the Kula is rather earlier.

    It's a very fine sword.
    My guess would be Syrian.
    Hilt 19thC, blade possibly earlier.

    I agree that the hilt looks Syrian.

    Nice blade Kurt. Judging by the pattern and color, I would say the blade is Persian
