Fine 18th C. Indian Mughal Katar Dagger of Rare Form, wootz watered steel blade

( ID: id1026 )

A rare 18th C. Indian Katar of tiger claw form.  A known type this example has been ascribed to Udaipur by design of koftgari however this piece has a chiseled iron grip more of a southern or central Indian form, possibly Deccani.  Overall the effect is quite pleasing as the deeply curved and thickly armor pirced blade creates a particularly vicious katar dagger.

Overall length is 13".
