Silver Mounted Short Knife from Miramar (Burma) - 0568

A short and heavy knife from Miramar (Burma). Usually all such blades are called Dha, but I rather limit the use of Dah to longer blades. This one is 6 inches long, single edge, heavy and has a 3 inches false edge. The hilt is deeply chiesled silver as well as scabbard mounts. A very similar blade is shown in item 0585 on this site.
