This heavy and tremedously long Indian firangi sword dates to some time in the 18th century, perhaps earlier. 126 cm-long overall, it is mounted with a whopping 105 cm or 41" long blade, single-edged, composed of pattern folded steel, with a nice damascus-like weave. Blade is still razor- sharp and shows signs of prior cleanings. Two-handed Khanda hilt of steel construction has acquired a beautiful dark patina. This is a wonderful sword for a collector of Indian and Islamic weapons. It would look great on the wall, next to a shamshir, a couple of kindjals, and a pair of holster pistols.
