Sales enquiries

A rare item; we are unable to identify the crest / badge but it includes Bharata Lipi Indian script, a typical British Lion, a short eared (Asian) elephant and a pair of crossed katars (Indian hand punch armour piercing daggers).


The 33 1/2 inch faintly etched blade (serial number "T. K. No. 8" to spine) is in very good condition (it was covered in very, very old and difficult to clean off grease) and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some bending but is good. The leather or faux leather grip has some holes, the grip wire is good and firm. The steel scabbard in very good shape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

This sword was clearly greased and bought back from India a long time ago, but thanks to the grease is in very good order. A real bargain (just try and find another), just £300. Please quote item reference T86. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0792-121x18x17 (2.408).
