19th Century Indian Hunting Tulwar (Shikargar)
Beautifully chiselled blade with depictions of animals and hunters with remnants of gold inlay. The hilt has been decorated with chiselled floral designs and finished with intricate gold inlay. The blade has an even aged patina and is still very sharp. These swords historically were used in hunting expeditions were the hunter would test their courage & skill against a wild beast. Indian history is riddled with such stories.
