Indian Tulwar, 19th Century
Possibly from Sindh, with silver koftgari decorated hilt. Blade length: 29 3/4” Grip length: 3 1/2” Overall length (blade point to pommel finial): 34 1/2” Point of balance: ~7 1/2”
This is my first tulwar, and I love it. It feels very different to my British swords, as might be expected. Luckily the grip is not too small for my hand, but it is still a nice snug fit. There is very little distal taper to the blade. The blade’s spine is 1/4” wide at the base, and tapers to 3/16” wide about 5 1/2” from the base. It remains 3/16” until the yelman, at which point I lack the tools to measure further taper.
