For years, I've been mostly ignoring tulwar since the majority of them for sale in the US are flimsy 1800's and 1900's "Sepoy" tulwar, mass produced as inexpensive weaponry by native workers in colonial factories. I hope I didn't miss getting to handle too many weapons like this one - despite the small handle, there's a nice feel to this weapon. Damascus patterned blade. Offered here at TherionArms on commission for a friend. A tip o'the helmet and thanks to P.S. Rawson for his book 'The Indian Sword' (New York, Arco Publishing Company, 1969) for the identification of this sword as Rajput form (western India), circa late 17/early 1800's.
