19th C. Algerian or Moroccan Flyssa Sword or Dagger
|( ID: is690 )|
A good example of a 19th C. Algerian flyssa. This example has the characteristic nicely carved wooden handle with a finely carved steel blade inlaid with brass designs. The scabbard is quite interesting and displays the French influence as it is a French bayonet scabbard adapted for the sword and fits perfectly.
Overall length is 25", blade is 16".
