Silver Ricasso Tulwar
Origin: North India
Date: 19th century
Materials: Silver, Damascus Steel, Wood and Velvet
A great example of a Damascus sword.
The hilt is ornamentally covered with silver work, in parts washed onto the hilt and in other parts representing small flowers. The exceptional blade is of Damascus steel with the layers of steel 'water' effect visible throughout the entire length of the blade. The cutting edge is burnished and sharp. The ricasso of the tulwar is also covered with silver work with a small boarder which gives the blade a great finishing touch. The blade is truly something to admire!
Accompanied with a new wooden scabbard wrapped in blue velvet.
