This wonderful steel katar shows excellent workmanship. The elephant vs. the tiger scenes are on both sides of the blade. Both sides of the protective langets are decorated in hand-chiseled lotus flower motifs. Katar is 48 cm. long, with an armor-piercing point. The very tip of the point is lost to time. An excellent Rajastani katar dating to the late 1700s - mid-1800s!
