18C Indian Farang-Katti (Grooved Bladed Farangi)
In good condition, rare multi-grooved blade version (Farang-Katti)
of an 18th Century Indian Farangi sword.
A Farangi, but with grooves to the blade, so a Farang-Katti. Actually
in good to very good condition, given its age; the blade point being
a little weak / rusted / damaged, the grip a little course, but
otherwise a good sound sword.
The impressive 39 3/4 blade has a lovely dark patina to it and
is form in the hilt. The hilt generally good, though the grip a
little course, perhaps by design for added grip.
You don't find many of these on the market, so £? (too late,
now sold) is a very good price indeed. Please quote item reference
