Item #: 1002-381 -- An 18th/19th Century Indian Iron-hilted Tulwar -- $250.00
An Indian tulwar with curved, multifullered blade with false edge. Short flared quillons, long, plain langets, the ecusson with riveted central brass boss. The pommel a period improvisation, somewhat loose, the disk being either a replacement or reattached original. The blade appears to show a grain but it is unclear whether it is pattern-welded or wootz steel. In interesting project for a collector. Overall 85 cm., blade 72.5 cm.
