This wonderful shamshir is mounted with a Hungarian style blade, 81 cm long, multi-fullered, and engraved with talismanic symbols of sun, moon, ornamental strap-work and floral sprays. Back of the blade is engraved with an arrow pointing towards the point of the blade, another traditional stylistic element. Blades of this style were highly prized in the Middle East and called 'Majar', from the Hungarian word 'Magyar'. The blade is probably a Solingen export to the Middle East.
Sword is tight and well-balanced. A very similar sword is featured in Robert Elgood's monumental book "Islamic Arms and Armour".
