Description

An authentic Asian dagger with a cruciform shaped blade.  When the blade is in the scabbard it appears to be similar to a military swagger stick, but quite heavy.  The fittings are brass and the scabbard is covered with what appears to be a thick clear lacquer over a snake skin patterned paper.  The handle is very heavy iron and brass also covered with what might be a thick layer of lacquer.  The total weight is just over one pound.  There is an unidentified emblem with three uncut/raw stones, mounted on the handle.  The stones could be natural white topaz.
