Sword "Irbis"

Vendor code: 1183

1/10

Handmade.

A silver moiré pattern creates a hypnotic effect, accentuating rigidity and might of a durable Damascus blade. The middle eastern style carved boxwood hilt, decorated with azure topaz stones, lazurite cabochons, turquoises & blue agates, is protected by a cross-guard. Incised details and plentifulness of faceted gemstones make a handle look visually lighter and more delicate. An elliptical lazurite cabochon located in the centre of the rain-guard serves as a medallion. A perfectly white leather scabbard with its bluish glare of topazes resembles mountain snow and serves as a background for an unfolding hunting scene - snow leopard, intense and ready to make a mighty leap, is peering out from behind a rock. Filigreed statuettes of animals are skilfully enamelled.
