Default Persian? Zulfikar sword

Hello everybody,

For share/ discuss,

I got this zulfikar sword,
the blade is split in two parts, the work is really well done.

I found on internet some Zulfikar blades cut in that way with a long engraved snake on the blade but I wonder how rare they were ?

The few I know is that they made these for the mythical symbol and sure it loses battle efficience with this shape.

So I wonder why they did it with such a good steel, ( wootz I think ) as found on other like-that sword if it was just for deco ?
