I think it will be easier for you to see the difference of the katars if I show all four katars on plate 25. The three other katars shown are said to be from Delhi.

Maybe your blade is Indian.

Ariel,
The number of fullers seem to be very big, but what about the ricasso?
As you know I do know very little about these swords.
