A very rare 18th century Tulwar hilted Firanghi.
Overall in length this sword is 94cms with a blade length of 81cms.
The blade is well marked with guild marks to one side and a single eyelash seen in the forte of the other side, something that is not often seen. The blade has multiple fullers and the back edge is sharpened for 23cms from the tip. The hilt on this example is an unusually thick large Tulwar hilt with the pommel disc being 7cms across. Traces of silver can still be seen in most surfaces.
This Firanghi has the point of balance 10cms from the base of the strong supple blade and it plays in the hand extremely well. The blade also has a clear bell ring when struck.
A sword I would consider to have been used by a swordsman of great experience.
A very nice and rare fighting sword.
