South Indian Chopper
 
12 Attachment(s)
Dear All,
Here is a rare South Indian Chopper, or so called malabar axe.
That "sacrificial" sword is 54cm in total length, made from forge folded steel. Really heavy in hand, and still sharp.
I actually have difficulties to date that piece, but i believe the blade to be 18th and the carved horn handle from the 19th century.
The carving in the handle and at the end of the handle (brass piece) are really crips and nicely done.
Ask 450e including shipping (international)
Don't hesitate to ask for more pictures.
Julien
