19th Century North Indian / Afghanistan Polouar
/ Pulwar Sabre for sale
A scarce North Indian / Afghan polouar or pulwar sabre, 19th Century
in good overall condition.
A double fullered 29 inch blade, double edged for the last 8 inches,
quite likely of wootz steel, certainly a quality hand forged blade
of typical form. Firm in the hilt. The langets slightly bent and
the steel aged and the top dome a little loose, but in generally
firm and sound condition. I guarantee this is a period piece, not
one of the hundreds of aged copies you find almost everywhere. A
good price at £400. Full sized / additional images available
upon request. Item reference number is 973 - Box 543-1m.
