A very rare sword length Tanjore Katar / Pata with an early Wootz blade.

End to end this sword is 102cms long. The blade length is 85cms.
This very unusual sword is a very early example of the latter Pata, the long gauntlet sword.
The long and narrow blade of elliptical cross section remains in very good condition with only minor spots of pitting and staining.
The hooded grip shows dark age staining to the steel hood that terminates in a styled monster head finial.

A very rare and early fighting sword in excellent condition for its age that would grade up very well if desired.
