WOW. Thank you for the insight into the etymology of this hilt! My post isn't exactly cogent to where Mr. Maisey is taking his argument. It is just a little back story as I've been thinking on this...

I see a curve too. That said its back appears straight while the back of you blade appears curve. So it could be recurved or simply well used. There is also how poor photos can create distortions, so...

I think the koftgari is maybe the final addition to this piece. That is why I called it "Tiflis style". The gold work is very thin. Plus it seems an odd place to decorate a sword, but not unusual for...

One bit of data following up on post #7's theme. The "M" at the bottom of post #10's mark is a religious symbol as well. I read this in one of my grandfather's books on wood carving about 25 year's...

Ian, you are right about Rajasthan and the T-spine. The northern influence would also make the word "kard" more logical. Sometimes I forget what I know.

As far as items online in "excavated"...

Kerala Kard?

The question of the etiquette in reviving a topic that hasn't been spoken of in a bit is always interesting. I have decided the best way is to link the old threads to the new one giving us a common...

Wow, nice!

Were both of these forms used at the same time, or did the form change between the early 20th century and the late 20th century? It almost looks like a change from a slicing tool to a...

Checking for understanding.

The mark in post #2 has elements that seem to be a Tblilisi mark between 1883-1899, but a little different than I've have seen referenced. The 84 and the the cross are one element rather than two...

Could the handles be a replacement? When I was a kid I would buy surplus bayonets for almost nothing and replace the handles that had sat in the cosmoline till they crumbled or became mush.

I've always wondered why the Solo pendok is open in the front while the Dogya completely covers the wood of the gandjar. Is it for symbolic reasons or is it purely aesthetic?
