And I would like to know the reason and the way of his thinking BEFORE I AGREE with him!
I believe the blade, not the hilt defines the sword, and a typical Khanda is considered as having a straight blade with wide, spoon or diamond shaped tip.
Based on this, I consider the second sword shown by Rajesh a Tulwar.
If it weren't like this, then all the swords/knives below would be Tulwars but I would rather call them "Firangi, Tegha, Indian Kukri, and again Tegha."
