Wish money wasn't so tight right now. I'd buy both if I could. Bet they don't last long

Mine has a fuller all the down the length of the blade, and the guard is rectangular and large. I like the large guard, it moves the balance point about 1" - 2" in front of the guard, which is where I like it, and makes the sword feel a lot lighter and quicker than it looks.

Yours sound like a Tibetan short sword, they have no fullers, is it shorter than 36"?

hmmm i will take a picture--- awesome, it seems it is just a very long tibetan short sword at 32 and 1/2 OAL-- very cool, now I need a full sized one, maybe pugs will let one go :D-- will still take pictures when the chance arrives, but I am sure you are right.

Pretty sure it's a Tibetan Short Sword, the length sounds right. Another way to tell, how does the point look, standard? Or like the one pictured in this thread? The Tibetan Short Sword has a standard tapered point.

Looks like it is still up for the grabbing, or is that up for Gehazing?
:D you know you want too.... and it would save me from the shakes. My hands are soooo ready to send a email that would be very VERY foolish right now for me.
