Thread: Identify a sword

    Question Identify a sword

    Hi,

    I have a sword that I know nothing about. Any information would be helpful and appreciated.

    I believe this is sword used for ceremonial purposes. I think it's from India. There is a pattern or something inscribed. Working on cleaning it.

    Thanks much.

    James

    I think you are correct James,looks modern-ish to me with the big retaining nut,old swords usually have the tang peened over the butt of the hilt.
    I believe that swords are still an important part of traditional dress for Sikhs.
    There is a proper forum for Indian swords where I'm sure you'll find advice more expert than mine!
