Hi Dmitri
are you sure that is a "Karud" ??
my point of view (that commit "only" myself ... ) is that beautiful "Damascene Johar" (not Indian wootz) weapon looks more
- a Peshkabz (Central Asia) who is any way belong the family of "Persian knifes"
as well as; Chau, Jambiya, Kard, Karud, Khandjar, Khapwah, Peshkabz ans Zirah Bonk ...
definatly, your "Peshkabz" looks 19th century - Congratulations

I would consider it a form of karud. The hilt has seen it's share of repairs but it is still a very nice example. Pesh kabz I thought have more upswept blades?

but ... the hilt it's very specific to Peshkabz
this is my point of reference

on pic's belong our friend, the second knife (down) according with "Islamic Weapons" is identify as Peshkabz not as "Karud"
"Karud" looks more as "Kard", I mean knife without a strong heel

Thanks for opinions. All the same it seems to me that the direct blade is typical for karud
