A very interesting early example of a Wootz bladed Tulwar.
This most unusual example would be considered by some, at the length of 69cms to be that of a Childs sword. Based on the hilt size being able to fit four fingers of a large grown man comfortablely within the grip area, behind the knuckle guard, I personally place this example as most likely a secondary sword worn ensuite with a larger sword.
Overall at 69cms and with a Wootz blade of 58cms, this sword remains is good condition with some light pitting to the blade.
The hilt displays older seldom seen quillon ends that show five 'lobes'.
The knuckle guard displays an incised chevron pattern to the outside that gives the appearance of an Elephants trunk.
Late 18th or very early 19th century fighting sword.
A very nice and capable smaller fighting sword most likely from the Rajasthan regions of India.
