18/19C Khanda Hilted Firangi Cavalry Sword
Likely a late 18th or early 19th Century Khanda hilted firangi
cavalry sword with imported European (probably Spanish) blade.
This firangi has a massive 40 inch European blade coming from its
silver worked hilt. Prized amongst Indo-Persia, these swords were
status symbols with their imported European blades as well as being
pretty effective cavalry lances. Everything in good order for the
age. Full sized pictures available upon request. Item reference
