Wootz Katar for sale
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hello,

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 :).

Cheers

Gernot

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.
