Thread: Indian tulwar for sale or trade.

    Indian tulwar for sale or trade.

    Antique 18th century Indian tulwar for sale or trade with contemporary, leather-over-wood, scabbard. Overall condition fair. Folded steel blade is 29 inches long (faint patterning visible). I bought this from Frederick's Swords 14 years ago for $350.00 (how much was a gallon of gas then?). Asking $300.00 shipped in continental US.

    This will be the final price reduction on this sword. I would take $245.00 shipped in the continental US. ...Or a reasonable offering for a trade? Thanks.

    Exclamation For both the Tulwar and the Jambiya...

    Hey Folks,
    I would accept $395.00 for BOTH the Indian Tulwar and the Moroccan Jambiya, shipped. This is a great deal, as I bought them over a decade ago for $600.00, plus shipping! Or... Any interesting trades?

    Ciao, Jon

    Lightbulb One very final price reduction.

    Hey Folks,

    I will accept $220.00 shipped in Cont. USA for this tulwar or $200.00 plus $20.00 towards Int. shipping. It is one of the deeper-curved types. The blade would show visible, active pattern if polished and acid-etched. Everything' is tight and sound. The leather covered scabbard is of recent make.

    Thumbs up Jambiya traded-off, tulwar still available.

    Hey John,

    The Indian tulwar is still up for grabs (bargain of the millennium) but the jambiya was traded with another SFI forumite. I have another jambiya that I could combine with the tulwar for $395.00 shipped. It's Indo-Persian not Moroccan. Much better blade (scabbard sucks). I do have a new group of swords to de-acquisition form my collection ($$$ or trade). You may have an interest in some of them? You can check my blog, as I am uploading more pieces this afternoon. http://antiqueswords58.blogspot.com/ Remember, if you bundle a small parcel (2 or more pieces), I will be kinder with the overall cost.

    Ciao, Jon

    Hey Stephen,

    I originally bought this kaskara from Faganarms for $345.00, about 12 years ago (when US dollars were bigger). As I have already knocked $50.00 off the top and this big sword will need over-sized shipping fees, I can only go $300.00 shipped & insured. I really do like this piece but need the $$$ for other projects. The only way I could do better, is in combination with another piece form my blog: http://antiqueswords58.blogspot.com/ I'll be completely honest with you, I am just an ordinary sword collector with a modest group of antique and modern-production examples. I am unemployed now and need to re-shuffle my collection to survive and/or continue to collect swords. Even so, I will only shave-off so much of the original cost... based on personal attachment or whether I have another example (and so on). On this one, all by itself, I must go $300.00 firm. OK? I will be adding a couple new pieces to the blog today or tomorrow.

    Thanks for looking, Jon

    Exclamation Very, very, very final price drop.

    I will accept $200.00. I will accept $200.00, shipped & fully insured for this genuine antique Tulwar (not a penny less). Oh, alright... I would still take $199.99, if push-came-to-shove.

    Thanks for lookin', Jon
