Wootz Katar for sale
For various reasons I want to reduce the sice of my collection so I decided to try to pass on some of my pieces.
This one is a probably 19th or late 18th century wootz katar, which I purchased from ashokaarts a while ago.
The handle and parts of the blade are decorated in nice gold koftgari, of which I would say about 80% remains.
The blade is incised with deep fullered panels, which show a dark crystalline wootz pattern. The edges are mirror polished and sport eyelash marks on both sides. The point is heavily reinforced.
I think it could be related to this katar presented by Roland in this thread.
Included is a leather covered wooden scabbard, which is quite damaged especially at the tip and of rather simple making, probably a later addition I would say.
I would like 2500€ for it with free shipping inside the EU. I am open to counter offers and also trade if the item in question is small in size :).
Bump and a price reduction to 2400€ with free shipping inside the EU or shared shipping costs worldwide.
Another bump and final price drop to 2300€ with free shipping inside the EU or shared shipping costs worldwide.
Alternatively I offer a package deal with the tulwar on offer here with 2550€ for both with free shipping inside the EU or shared shipping costs worldwide.
Since the tulwar has been sold the package deal is no more.
Asking price is still 2300€ with free shipping inside the EU or shared shipping costs worldwide.
New year, new deal :)
Another reluctant price drop to 2200€, with free shipping inside the EU or shared shipping costs worldwide.
Last price drop to 2100€ with free shipping inside the EU and shared shipping cost worldwide.
I am also still open for trade offers (I am mainly interested in Indopersian daggers of highish quality at the moment).
I will let this offer stand for about another month. If no offers come forward, I will then remove it, and start looking into other options.
