Default Swords For Sale

Up for sale is 4 swords, Indian items.

I ship using fedex (costs 60 to 100 usd depending on item)

Payment: bank transfer.

Contact: Forum's private message or my email if you know it already.

Items:

1- Crystalline wootz tulwar. Lovely piece, with a nimble blade. Yelman is slender and well made. Wootz pattern is crystalline, no forging flaws or scarf welds and consistent through out the blade. Will photograph with a better camera and lighting to do it justice. Minor loss to the tip. Light and slightly flexible blade. Handle is carved, relatively large and comfortable to hold. Price 800$

2- Large tulwar with what I think is a European blade. Well made blade, great fuller work. Handle is large as well, with worn out silver sheet. 600$

3- North (?) Indian tulwar with a nice, probably pattern welded blade with a high polish. Folding marks show on it and its quite sharp. Big handle. Quite clean. Minor movement in the handle. Comes with a nice scabbard, new leather but good original mounts. 600$

4- Sindh (?) sword with probably one of the best laminated blades I've come across. No forge flaws or cracks, with lamination consistently showing through out the blade. Signed in gold, with what appears to be an owner's name: though I cannot confirm. Bottom cartouche says O Ali O Mohammed. Remnants of a beduh can be seen close to the cartouches. Blade has a strong curve and a nice thing to handle. Handle is quite plain. 900$
