Thanks for the share! I wasn't aware that kind of weapon constituted a "dussak". I thought that term was reserved for those guard-less things like this: http://s715.beta.photobucket.com/user/m ... l.jpg.html

Terms aside, still an attractive weapon.

M.
When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.
