Rare and very early North African Arabic Nimcha Saif Sword
Most Nimchas date from the 18th-20th Century but this is a distinctive form of Nimcha known as the “Zanzibar” hilt. This Nimcha has a superb quality blade either in imitation or taken from a 17th Century European sword – the fine tempering and workmanship on the blade makes me think that it is probably a European blade mounted on a North African hilt. It is deeply engraved “IHS” within the fullers to both sides. The hilt is wood and features a very fine cut steel knucklebow.
Condition of the Nimcha
In excellent condition for its great age with a fine polished blade.
Specifications of the Nimcha
Blade length is 36 inches (41.5 inches overall).
