An original 18th Century European backsword. Shaped wooden hilt with metal capped pommel and a pipe back blade etched with ancient sun, crescent and other symbols.

//

The backsword has a curved blade and is often associated with the cavalry of Central Europe, who were called hussars. It was used extensively in the Ottoman and Napoleonic Wars. This single-edged blade has a triangular cross-section that gives it its name: it has a flat back opposite its cutting edge.
