The sword has a slightly curved, single-edged, damask blade, with a double groove, engraved with the effigy of a dragon on a face and ideograms on the other. It features a flat, brass hilt of lobed shape with relieved border, decorated with bas-relieved floral motifs en suite with all other mounts. The grip is black, made of wood while the wooden scabbard comes with mounts decorated en suite.

Broken Mirror / Evening Sky is a stunning series by New York-based photographer Bing Wright, who creates breathtaking images of sunsets seen through shattered mirrors. Richly colored skyscapes are distorted by the cracked glass, abstracting the traditional image of a sunset in a visually striking way.
These shots were shared with us by a loyal FN fan who recently had his FN-49 restored by Arizona Response Systems, who specialize in restoration work for vintage or antique firearms.
The FN Model 1949, chambered in 7.92x57 mm, was designed by Dieudonné Saive and produced by FN Herstal between 1948 and 1961.
This particular rifle was manufactured for the Egyptian government.
