Default Khanda Sword

hi there
here is an other khanda sword from my collection. the last thread was very intresting for me, so im very intrested over the opinions from the "forum family" the blade is in an very good condition, with polish edges. it is made from very fine wootz steel. the reinforced back is decorated with silver kotgari (fighting animals( an tiger again an elephant))the length is 82cm (over all 94cm.) the blade is at the top 5 cm wide. the hilt is indo muslim type with bidri pattern. unfortunatly is at the pommel an whole. i think the scabbard is newly made.
