The way you look at it makes me take my hat off to you, as I would have been quite angry.l

I am really sorry it has come so far, but I think the different...

It is a fantastic book - if you have the faintest intrest in the subject - buy it, as you are not likely to find another one like it for years to come.

midelburgo, it is interesting that you mention a Polish link, but I am not quite sure why you do so, as I would have said Germany.
But I do agree with you, that they likely were used after a...

Victrix, the 'sword' I saw in Istanbul was like the one Tirri shows, not like the one yoou show - desværre.

No Fernando, it was described to me as a Panzersteker, by someone who knew what he was talking about - unfortunately he is dead now.

From the one who translated the text on my weapons, I was told that the text should be read from right to left, but the numbers from left to right.

Fernando, I remember it to have been a long rod, pointet at one end and a hilt at the other end, just like the one Tirri shows..

Kubur, you can see that the picture I have shown is from the book, and this is not too good, so to make a blow up would not help.

Thank you Roland:-).

Tirri calls it a 'Trusting Tulwar'. Which I find is wrong, that is why I wrote 'tulwar', as I did, as I did not know what it was called in English - I only knew the German name.

If I remember correctly, the length of the 'blade' is about the same length as a firangi blade, maybe a bit longer.

In Germany they are called 'Panzer stecher' as far as I am informed, so they must have been knnown in Germany as well. They are, however, rare.

A very special 'tulwar'

In his book Tirri shows the attached 'tulwar'. These are very rare and were used by a man on horse to stab someone laying on the ground. The idea was that the very slim, but stiff blade, should be...

You can hardly compare the blades off these two katars, with the katar blade on the first katar you showed.

I cant say that I have seen a katar with a crooked blade like this one, but then again, I have not seen them all.
The hilt seems to be from south India, maybe 17th century or later.

NavdeepBal, please tell us from where in India you come, as the names can differ quite a lot, depending on the different places.

If the hilts are the most important, what about the Teghas - they also have a tulwar hilt, but they get their...

Since you ask Ariel, no I would not pin point it to Marwai at the moment.
There are postulates, but no arguments why it should be from there.
