Mameluke Presentation Sabre

  • Dated: circa 1820
  • Culture: British
  • Measurements: overall length 36”

Forged of Damascus steel, this Mameluke presentation sabre was proudly carried by officers of the British Army during the early 19th century. The curved blade is richly decorated with intricate Turkish and oriental motifs, including a fire-gilded lion’s head on the hilt, while its gilt and embossed shagreen scabbard features two rings in order to hang from a belt.

Mameluke swords take their name from Mamluk warriors of Ottoman Egypt. Today, modern Mameluke swords are worn by U.S. Marine officers, commemorating the Marines’ service during the First Barbary War, 1801-1805. To find such an extraordinary weapon in such excellent condition is truly rare.

Ten pictures that will make you love advertising

This right here is what advertising should be. Not sexualizing men and women. Just clever little things like this.

the van gogh and shark one though

this just makes me think that if I don’t wear my glasses I’ll get to see the world as a van gogh painting. man i wish there was truth in advertising there

My mom literally just said that people on the internet aren’t real

She’s right.

None of us exist.

We are a figment of your imagination.

A chemical in your brain.

A lifesaver made by your own mind.

But she found out.

And we must end her.

Fuck
