Unusual Moro (?) Sword - 14877


This sword looks Moro but it can very well be from around. Several suggestions were made on the various forums: Moro, Sulu even Bugis. We are not sure. The massive blade is 22 inches long, non-symmetrical with two fullers. Separate Ganja and steel clamp (similar to more common Moro blades). Polished wood grip with good age patina and steel collar. Total length 27 inches. The sword show some use. The blade is slightly pitted but very shallow. very impressive and interesting sword. We assume first half of the 19 C. or earlier
