18th C. Chinese Damascus Niuweidao

( ID: c136 )

FOR ALL ITEMS CLICK ON THUMBNAIL TO THE LEFT FOR MORE PICTURES An ultra rare Chinese 18th c. officers sword with silver inlaid iron fittings. This example has the original with all the original fittings. The leather has been reconditioned on the scabbard. The blade is a beuaty of early Chinese bladesmithing. The blade displays a shape similar to central Asian swords such as shamshirs or shashqas but with Japanese characteristics as well, particularly with the long double edge sometimes seen Japanese ken blades. The blade displays a very fine rose-bud style pattern throughout the entire length and with a horse tooth style hardened edge which the bladesmith fused together. This pattern is quite rare in any kind of sword and in an original 18th C. Chinese sword it is almost non-existent to find in any condition. 38" OAL, 30" blade
