A good multi-fullered Indo-Persian Tulwar
In overall good condition, a highly impressive, well made, multi-fullered
There are tulwars and then there are impressive tulwars like this
one. Although the koftkari has mostly come away from the hilt, this
sabre was clearly once the property of a very important man. The
blade is absolutely superb and still sharp; this is no dress sword,
this is a vicious, effective slashing sabre which the British basically
copied in their late 18th century light cavalry sabres.
With the maker's crescent moon mark still visible, the 27.5 inch
blade is firm in the hilt. Further / full sized images available
upon request. My item reference number is 522 (124).
