    Smile Various identification

    (I've posted this on the Islamic site as well but still worth putting it here also)

    Hello people, it's been a while since I was here, so the collection has grown somewhat!
    Can you check out my webpage, from which I'd really appreciate any advice on further identification.

    The main one right now, is a late 18thC Indian Tulwar (last 4 pictures, on page 4 in the sword gallery)
    Any ideas on the armourers marks there or the very strange stamp marks on the blade? Almost look like runish script!
    Cheers
    Andy

    Really no idea if it's script or decoration but any thoughts appreciated.

    Tulwar

    Nice Tulwar

    design in fuller looks like \XIIXIIXIIXIIXIIX

    a design motif, I doubt it has any meaning.

    Looks like a NW Indian/Afghan type called a "pulower" - spelling varies.
