The undulated, pamor blade is ribbed and double-edged toward the tip and straight and single-edged on the remaining length with two fullers near the central chiselling picturing two, woven, long dragon’s tails. The tails of the dragons is separating at the base and create the body of two monsters with gilded eyes surmounted by gilded crowns. The wooden scabbard is covered with a bas-relieved brass sheet picturing floral and geometrical motifs and also features brass-sheet covering decorated en suite with the sword.
