Seller: rsword (1,311) 100%, Location: Raleigh, North Carolina, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 192597099747 Being offered is a nice old antique Indian Tulwar sword with a velvet covered scabbard and interesting markings on the blade that might represent a unit or regiment mark. This sword measures 36” long when measured in its scabbard. Nice thick steel handle with thick mushroom shaped pommels and small wheel pommel disc. Star decoration to the top,of the pommel disc. The steel in the handle has oxidation and some remnants of a gold color material that may be old solder to join up the pieces of the handle. Strong blade with slight yelman like you see on a kilij blade but much more subtle. There are some hand carved markings on one side of the blade. You have a R with a straight line beneath it, then the initials S.L.K. And below that the number 7. The use of the line beneath the R makes me think this is a regiment number. Many Indians fought with the English and even had their own units so perhaps this sword was part of an Indian regiment fighting for the British. The scabbard is nice. Old velvet with wear from age. Red for the majority of the scabbard covering and green at the very top. It is missing its metal chape at the bottom. An interesting sword with potentially interesting military associated history.
