27- Ethnographic tribal warriors sword (possibly igorot headhunters sword) with a long 17 ¾ inch / 45 cm blade. Thick and sturdy blade with a sharp edge, the back of the blade has some file decoration. One side of the blade is completely flat, the other side of the blade is ridged (similar to Borneo headhunters Mandau’s). The sword has cylindrical shaped hardwood handle carved on both sides with a dancing warrior with a spiky hat/headdress. Comes with a deeply carved wooden scabbard with a thin brass band around the scabbard throat. The scabbard is carved with 2 warriors to either side with 2 heads towards the tip and a snake at the very end (same carving on either side). The heads look like head trophies. I also have a similar sword (without scabbard) for sale on this site with a real human hair tuft. This scabbard is reddish burgundy stained and has dark age patina overall. Overall length in scabbard is 26 ¼ inches/ 66 ¾ inches approx..
