This listing has been REMOVED and is no longer active

A very wide takouba with a stacked pommel hilt. This sword shows a side to wide blades less commonly seen - lacking fancy brass work it is a simple design with an exposed iron guard.

The blade is very wide, very flat and extremely flexible. The tip features a hole which would have likely held a copper or brass slug at one point in time. The blade features heavy marking from hand tools across the surface and the edge shows clear signs of having been hammered out.

The pommel is a heavy brass construction and balances the blade well. The grip is leather wrapped and simple. The scabbard continues that theme being all leather.

Overall length: 79cm
Blade length: 62.5cm
Blade width at base: 8.25cm

Asking 265 USD/200 EUR.

Shipping is from Czech Republic via standard parcel post. Within Europe likely 15-20 EUR to the US likely 20-30 EUR range.

Contact me via PM or email at for more photos, queries, offers etc.
