Hi Sancar,its illegal to buy edged weapons more than a certain length as per Indian law anywhere in India,also difficult to even take them out of India even if its a replica
In Assam, Guwahati is one of the big citys in north east of india.Am sure you will find a good variety of weapons from Assam,Nagaland,Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh and the odd Nepalese weapons which are made in Benares,Uttar Pradesh state,Please inquire with the locals for the Antique shops and that's the best place to find things you are wanting.Rajasthan is the heart of reproductions of Indo-Persian weapons ,made so well that they end up in top auction houses in Europe and USA,as other members have suggested its best to buy a Tulwar outside India which would be cheaper and more authentic
Best Regards,
Rajesh
