Charles, it is not next to impossible, it is impossible, as the did not have a scabbard, they were worn in a kind of belt over the shoulder - at least the ones from Coorg.

A pity photographing the stamp did not work, please try again, maybe someone knows from where it is, which would give you an idea of what the hilt should look like.

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.

I dont know, but I see one possibility. When the caravans from north Africa aand Arabia were returning from India, they needed to bring back items for trade, so maybe the blade was part of such items.
