19C Maratha Surai / Sosun Patta Khandar Sword,
In good overall condition, a very odd "upside down"
Sosun Patta style 19C Maratha Surai Khandar Sword.*
A very unique and therefore rare sword. Not only does it have a
Sosun Patta style bulbous point end, but the cutting edge is on
the inside of the curved blade! Perhaps used by a mounted soldier
in some way. It may even be an executioner's sword. Very different!
The 29 3/4 inch "upside down" bulbous point end blade
is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt shows signs
of age and wear but is in good shape. The scabbard may not be 19th
Century but is made for the sword; the sword sheathes and draws
Very, very unusual sword which we have never seen the like of
before. Therefore, we suspect we have well and truly under-priced
this at £450. Please quote item reference M79. Further / full
sized images available upon request. Box 1279-1m (2.001)
