An interesting takouba with a rather broad blade and triple fullers which also has a rather unique feature, a double engraved Ethiopian Lion and Star. The sword has a red embossed leather and wood scabbard and a stunning stacked metal pommel. The swords drag is brass and green leather which makes a nice counterpoint and gives the sword the colours of the Ethiopian flag. The blade is in good condition as is the scabbard, there are minor losses to the guard. This sword can be yours for £195 or best offer.
