In overall good condition, a 19C Indian Koftgari Hilt & Blade
Tulwar & Scabbard.

but with most of the blade koftgari gone; blade sharpened, maybe
again more recently. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with remnants
of koftgari decoration. Leather covered scabbard sound but with
wear and repair. The sword sheathes and draws well.
