For Sale: Antique gold decorated wootz katar
This listing has been REMOVED and is no longer active


For various reasons I want to reduce the sice of my collection so I decided to try to pass on some of my pieces.
This one is a really nice katar, the classical Indian push dagger, which probably dates to the late 18th or early 19th century.

The handle and parts of the blade are decorated in nice gold koftgari, of which I would say about 80% remains.
The blade is incised with deep fullered panels, which show a dark crystalline wootz pattern. The edges are mirror polished and sport eyelash marks on both sides. The point is heavily reinforced.

Included is a leather covered wooden scabbard, which is quite damaged especially at the tip and of rather simple making, probably a later addition I would say.

I would like 2500 for it with free shipping worldwide.

I am also open to reasonable offers or trade, although I am only interested in antiques at the moment, especially indopersian daggers or knifes.

I you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them.
