Moroccan flyssa

length: 18.2"
blade: 14.2"
blade width: 0.8"
handle: 4.0"

Moroccan flyssa short sword. Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship in form and function, with brass handle of typical bird-head's form and engraving and brass inlay on the spine and sides of the blade. Close to .30" at the spine, the blade is beveled down to razor sharpness. Engraved wooden scabbard held together by metal bands, some damage to last few inches. Circa late 1700's - early 1800's.
