A very interesting 19th C. Katar dagger mounted in the Anglo-Indian style.

The broad blade is made of fine Indian crystalline wootz and has the burnished edge seen on the finest examples. A very fine example, it comes with the original English made leather scabbard with a silver chape. Blade: 8", Overall length: 10 1/8", W. 3 3/4"
