Good old Northern Thai sword (dha). This piece has rattan bindings with a silver pommel. The scabbard and blade match but are not original as the blade is about 10cm shorter than meant for the sword. L: 70cm/27.5in and the blade is 37cm/14.5in. The blade is sharp but a bit rusty. Originally there was circa 1920’s Rama the 8th coin stuck in the pommel, I have found another 1930s coin as a replacement which you can glue in if you want.
