A good Laos Daab with a very fine samrit hilt.
This example measures 77cms long and carries a blade with a length of 47cms.
The hilt is a beautiful full samrit type with exceptional detail throughout. The fore grip is cast with an integral demure disc guard and an extremely detailed and robust pommel with extended spire, a dangerous aspect of the sword type, one capable of delivering a killer strike.
The blade is typical for the sword type. It's thick spine carries a medial ridge from end to end, a sharp cutting edge and the classical hatchet tip.
A good example of the type with a finely detailed hilt.
