North African Short sword and Three Knives - Very old

R800.00

A North African Short sword and Three Knives - Very old- Bought from a deceased estate auction so no further info is available. The short sword has a tempered blade length of 36cm. Handles of knives are as per photograph- A very desirable  addition to an African Collection.Thanks to another Bid or Buyer's help, I can now identify these as being of Sudanese origin. The short knives are Sudanese arm knives and the short sword is a Sudanese Kaskara.

Buyer should indicate preference in terms of postage.
