Default Katars with protrusion

Not so long ago I got a katar with protrusion, and would like to know if others also have these katars.
The length is 52 cm and the blade is 26 cm.
The whole katar is made of dark wootz, and is is undecorated.

Sometimes it's nice to learn things about the history or region of the weapons. Otherwise these are simply two katars which look similar. This effect is very popular on pininterest In any case thanks for the entry.

Hi Jim :-),
Yes I asked myself the same question.
I dont know what the 'L' means, maybe it is a secret code.
I do hope, however, that trajan will explain it to us.

no idea as to history or origin. i merely posted the pic as jens asked for other examples with protrusions.

as to the mystery of the L, I cataloged my katars by letter.

Hi Trajan,
Thank you again for responding, with pictures! Interesting system using letters to 'catalog' (?) these weapons. I have often tried to imagine how it is possible to collect weapons without ever trying to learn more on their origin or age, but clearly these methods exist.
Nice exemplars, but how unfortunate to see them regarded without history or dimension.
I'm just sayin'

Jim
