Hey everyone;

I'm going on a trip to northwest India this summer, and would LOVE to pick up an authentic Pata or Khanda. I'll be travelling through Delhi, Chandighar, Ludhiana, Amritsar, and perhaps down to Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Chittorgarh.

Considering this area is the Sikh and Rajput homeland of India, I would think there would be a good place to buy swords somewhere in these cities.

Can anyone here recommend a place for me? Fortunately I will be staying with friends who live in the area so I won't be doing my own haggling (I don't speak punjabi or hindi).
