It's Saturday Night !
 
Wrong link ; it was one of the weapons featured in the same auction that Punal won the Yakan barung from .
http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws...TRK%3AMEWA%3AIT

I was watching that one and the Indo Jambiya in the same auction which went for a ridiculously high price .

Question is ; was it really Venetian or a Barbary Pirate Nimcha ?

Considered bidding on both but now I'm glad I didn't bother ... :p
Also glad I didn't waste the gas driving to Rhode Island .

A lot of money without a scabbard, when compered to those heavy cavalry sabres with a scabbard you can get for near the same money.

Here's another one from the same auction that made no sense to me:

http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws/...RK%3AMEWA%3AIT

A Piso Podang with only one bid of $1,253.00. The estimate was $200.00-$300.00 and the opening bid was lower than this? How could it get so high in one bid?

There was a single absentee buyer before him. I have a podang for sale; maybe he can contact me with his $1250 bid :D :D :D

That's a Piso dagger . :rolleyes:
Never saw such a short blade on a Piso .
Like I said I'm glad I didn't waste the time and the gas .

I'm with Ariel ; will someone please introduce me to these generous Buyers . :D
