I am not an expert in reading the inscriptions, but if no one is ready to reply, I can try (due to despair) to suggest my own explanation, not the reading, because the inscription perhaps cannot be...

Unfortunately, or rather fortunately, not everything is so simple. This sword had a name. So far, we can say for sure that it is very likely that such a sword was used by "Banabaz" troops by analogy...

I apologize. It is not always written "Sri Baldev Ji" on such hilt. On the hilt from the post of Envodas it is written "Sri Baidyanath Ji". Very crudely and with mistakes. I do not believe that this...

In the case of the "owner's inscription" exactly in this place of hilt I only trust in such a sword of raja and an inscription (attached). I am talking about swords of 19th - 20th, when, apparently,...

I'm afraid it doesn't matter. I don't think this sword belonged to him. There are handles that are very simply decorated, with poorly made inscriptions often with errors and missing characters. Such...
