FOR SALE: Alexandrian sword type XVIIIc with scabbard
This one is for sale:
Sword is based on Alexandrian sword type XVIIIc from Metropolitan Museum in Mew York. I've made engraved inscription and two marks similar to original one (M (or W) and cross).
Pattern on the scabbard is based on medieval dagger's scabbard (check a photo).
"The Arabic inscription engraved on the blade of this sword indicates that it was part of the large group of European arms and armor once stored in the Mamluk arsenal in Alexandria, Egypt. Many of those pieces were taken as booty in the battles between Muslim and Christian armies in the Near East and Aegean regions; others were sent to the sultan as tribute, possibly by the king of Cyprus.
The inscription reads in translation: "Donation of al-Mālik al Mu`ayyad Abū al-Nasr Shaykh to the armory in the frontier city of Alexandria [in the] year 822 [A.D. 1419]."
