Good Old Kastane Sword Sri-Lanka - 7214
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 21 inches good steel blade and horn grip. All the hilt parts are of great decorative values – A piece of art by itself. The monster styled quillons, the engraved D guard and grips inlaid with decorative brass inserts and the monster head pommel with all parts delicately carved with great care and fine details. Good condition The blade is of relatively good quality. A minor chip to the horn in the pommel tip. An unusually decorative piece from the early 19-century at a very attractive price.
