There is no other shashka like this one.
A unique shashka from Russo-Turkish was in 1788.
No scabbard.

According to the blade inscription the soldier to whom it was dedicated probably saved 2 lives during the assault on that bastion. Looks like it was something extremely dramatic for 3 of them and the 2 decided to perpetuate their gratitude is such rare way as the full dedication on a weapon and make this shahska unofficially the symbol of bravery.
Practically, the award weapons for bravery had no names of the recipients and no description of where and what happened, those weapons are not talking to you, when this piece is telling a whole story about the people who took the part on that particular day and that particular battle.

Shipping & Insurance are additional.
