Could the flowers shown on the hilt be Ixora Coccinea flowers?
The plant is a medicine plant used in India, and the flowers are sometimes used on Indian hilts.

I am sorry but I dont have the time to find quotes on this subject. So I am afraid you will have to find them yourself, which should not be too difficult.

The sword shown is not a pattisa blade, or it would have been changed quite a lot.

It is interesting to see that using poison is very seldom mentioned in the books, so it is not easy to know how often it was used. Maybe this means that it was used often/seldom, so the authors did...

Ken,
My reason for saying so is, that there is a gap between the hilt and the blade. This mostly means that either the hilt or the blade has been changed during the time of use.

I doubt that the hilt is a 'Tipu hilt', as I dont remember to have seen a horse head on any of the hilts attributed to Tipu.
