Hello estcrh,

I'm pretty sure, that we see a tulwar hilt from early to mid 19th ct. and made from wootz.
The last picture shows clearly wootz for my eyes.

The state of corrosion is further sign for wootz.

But I also know, that they are able to make wootz since a few years in India, so it is quite complicated to make safe statements. Ugly wootz and easy to identify but they constantly improving their skills.
