Superb Silver kastana Sword from Sri-Lanka - 6061

The Kastane is the national sword of Sri-Lanka. It is characterized by its short curved blade, usually of mediocre quality and highly decorative hilt and scabbard. Here we have a good example with 18 inches steel blade and silver grip of great decorative values A piece of art by itself. The monster styled quillons, the engraved D guard and grips, and above all the monster head pommel with all parts delicately chiseled and engraved with great care and fine details, and set with gold tongue red stone eyes. The grip is in excellent condition and the blade is in good. Just look at the photos and close-ups. An unusually decorative piece from the early 19-century
