19th Century Indo-Persian Tulwar with Superb
Damascus Blade, sold
An exceptional Damascus blade complete with maker / armourer marks,
mounted into an Indo-Persian tulwar.
I am sure the blade is much older than the hilt, probably early
18th Century. This is the finest Damascus blade I have ever come
across in terms of clarity of beautiful forging lines. The blade
is quite heavy but exceptionally strong and clearly has seen battle
token of the nicks to the forward cutting edge. The blade bears
two maker / armorer marks. I guarantee this is an old authentic
The 70cm blade is firm in the hilt. The very smallest end of the
tip has a bend (could be easily hammered out). The hilt bears traces
of gold decoration. The price reflects the fact you will not find
many better examples of this highly desirable blade. Further / full
sized images upon request. My item number 808 (340).
