Bronze sword with very long, narrow blade, which has a wide central ridge. The handle is poured in overlay casting. It has a crescent-shaped clamp at the bottom that fences the blade in on top. The actual handle is minimally conical and round in cross section. It closes with a flat, horizontal disc. Blade with green corrosion layer, both cutting edges with chips. Otherwise intact. Due to its length of 82 cm a rare and extraordinary Luristan sword.
