Default SJ Sword

This is part of a collection I bought a few years ago. Recently made, but made by the descendents of the craftsmen who have been making pieces like these for a long time.

Sword is 42" long. Comments?

Very nice indeed. Good workmanship is good workmanship, no matter when it is done. First rate quality piece.

Is there a scabbard?

Ian.

Beautiful, beautiful tulwar. Is it "fully functional" or just decorative.

Please don't test it on anyone/anything if you're not sure.

I purchased one of the stone handled kanjars from Joel before he sold this stock . The blade on that particular piece although beautiful was not hardened .

Perhaps the swords were treated differently .

The blade is not sharp. Don't know about hardened. How could I tell?

Very nice hilt with first rate work. Your hilt is an old Mughal Hilt with new work. The Blade of course is new. I do envy the hilt... .

Best regards,

Karni
