    A daab from Thailand

    The following piece is attributed to Thailand by Oriental Arms. This is truly a beautiful piece. I really like this style.

    "A Classical, very large and heavy two handed fighting sword Dha from Thailand. The slightly curved heavy blade is 26 inches long with a raised spine ridge and simple engraved pattern. The grip is wood, 14 inches long and entirely covered with thin silver foil and bound with twisted silver wires and with a onion shape silver pommel (classical Thai style). The wood scabbard is also entirely covered with silver decorated with fine silver filigree work. This sword comes with a red fabric bound belt cord. Total length 42 inches."

    "very elegant old Thai Dah sword. The blade is light and narrow, 18 inches long, well made. The long, 12 inches two handed handle is entirely covered with silver work with an onion shaped pommel (Classical Thai work) and so is the wood scabbard set with elaborately decorated silver bands. Total length (in scabbard) 31 ˝ inches. Good condition. Good patina on the blade with minor pitted patches. All silver parts are beautifully age patinated. There is a minor damage to the silver handle and the scabbard tip. The pommel cup is lightly loose."
