Well katar daggers have been something I've found a small intrest in. Mainly because mediocre quality examples like these 2 are fairly affordable. Have to sell these two to fund future nihonto purchases.



First one is a scissor katar, that is called Jamadhar Sehlikaneh in India. This has been purchased from Oriental Arms, and it dates to the end of 19th century. The scissor katar was more of a novelty item than actual fighting weapon. In decent shape, condition can be seen in pictures. There is some fine detailing in the middle of outer blades. In one of my books this type of detailing is described as silver koftgari decoration of the poorest quality.





Whole length: 38,5 cm
Outer blades: 19,5 cm
Inner blade: 17,4 cm

Second one is more traditional shaped. It has long narrow blade that has high central ridge. Unfortunately the blade is bit bent, and there is a small crack in the handlebar. This has been bought from English antique shop, and I believe it dates to the end of 19th century.




Whole length: 43,8 cm
Blade length: 25,2 cm

Price: 400 for both, that includes shipping in Europe and PayPal fees. Payment by bank transfer or PayPal.

If you have any questions or need more pictures, just ask me.

So two years later this pair is still for sale. I guess my asking price was way too optimistic as these are very niche product.

Here are some pics as the old ones are not available:






Price will be 150 + shipping. In Europe shipping costs will be 30. I'll have to check outside EU per country basis.

I think this will be a great deal and I can throw in a 3 tier sword stand for display.
