    Sword ID req'd, please

    Hi everyone,

    Found this one at the flea market. Never seen one before. Total length 55 cm. Maker mark - two elephants (???). handle is made of wood and metal (silver?). Pommel is bone.
    Any help would be appreciated, tnx.

    You've had a great find there Dvir!
    It's a 'Kachin Naga Dao' from Burma/Assam area.
    Primarily a tool, but also a weapon if needed no doubt!
    It's unusual to see one with such a well preserved scabbard and strap.
    Classic form and complete. A very nice find.

    Wow Gene how exciting! Definitely going to research it some more, maybe try to associate it to a specific tribe through the maker's mark. Thank you so much for the info!

    You are very welcome. If I'd found it I'd be very pleased!
