enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description here. Scabbard and handle are wood. Scabbard has2of 3 bands possibly brass. Blade has markings in 2 locations, designs are similar. Has hallmark design on bottom of guard, which may be brass, also. Seems more ceremonial. Thinking maybe n. African, or maybe middle eastern. Possibly mossback or Mongolian? Any help greatly appreciated.


It appears to me to be of Thai or Burmese design - similar to the krabi or dha. I base my opinion on the scabbard, hilt design, and overall blade shape. Although many examples of these types do not have much of a cross guard the two below have similar ones to yours. dha Image from: Mount Castle Antiques krabi Image from: I stock photos
