I offer for sale a very fine, 19th century - Indo-Persian 'Tulwar' sword.
This beautiful sword has a forge-blackened patina and feels very purposeful in the hand, having a blade which for the last third of it's length widens significantly towards the tip. A formidable ancient fighting weapon and designed for slashing.
The plain single-edged blade is curved and well over 29 inches in length, having a 'false edge' for it's last 10 inches. The blade still retains a sharp edge and is firm in the hilt. It shows a little wear and pitting.
The hilt is of classic form with internal langets and knucklebow. The pommel is of disc form and slightly concaved, bearing a sunburst decoration where the tang emerges.
Indo-Persian Tulwar Sabre.
