Large Indian Khandjar www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


Large Indian Khandjar circa 1900.
Similar but larger variant as seen in sold inventory s088, longer thicker blade with a deeper forward curve and deeper recurve.
The blade is deeply chiselled to both sides. In the forte there are 2 tigers? to both sides, next to this is an Elephant with a rider, the Elephant shows five trunks and short legs so it might be a representation of a Makara? one side shows only the rider, the other shows the rider with a pavillion behind him on the elephants back.
There is a 6 armed diety towards the tip with each foot on what appears to be a tiger head.
Fine decorative gold koftgari covers the entire hilt, worn in places.
The blade also has gold koftgari to the chiseled images and scrolls top and bottom of the blade.
A large attractive Khandjar of unusual form.
