19C Tulwar Hilted Aradam / Arapusta (Serrated)
Bladed Sword, Sold
In good condition, a very rare Arapusta bladed tulwar.
Often referred to as an "Aradam" sword, this is actually
a rare Arapusta (blade serrated along one edge) Tulwar with very
high quality wootz steel blade. Believed to have been favoured by
the Moguls, this is definitely one sword you would not want taking
a slice at you with.
The 30 1/2 inch blade is in good condition, with clear signs of
hand forging (forging lines or "ware") and the tell tale
speckle of high quality wootz steel. The blade is firm in the steel
hilt which has remains of koftgari decoration. Well worth our price
of only £? (too late, now sold). Further / full-sized pictures
available upon request. Please quote item reference number C53 (642).
