A Dayak sword - Mandau - with rattan bound deer antler handle in the form of a finely carved zoomorphic (possibly deer's) head. The iron blade is engraved with stylized scrolling vine decoration. This item was made (and used) during either the 19th or very early 20th Century. Condition: very good, but the sword is without its scabbard and the bade has seen much use, having many nicks to the cutting edge; also much of the decorative brass inlay to the blade is missing. For many additional pictures please view #1063 in our Liverpool shop website at 69aliverpool.co.uk Blade: 54cm (21.25 inches) long; 4.3cm at the widest part & with a maximum thickness of 1.5cm at the top of the blade. Total length (incuding handle): 69cm (27 inches) PLEASE NOTE: Due to posting restrictions we are unable to ship this item. We can only sell directly through our Liverpool shop.
