Fine Wootz Karud Dagger - 14382 - Now for $3,595.00
Although the name KARUD for this type of dagger raised many arguments, we still prefer to use it as it is so common between many collectors. This very fine exemplar is coming from North India or Afghanistan. Early 19 C. A fine wootz blade 11 inches long with acute point, reinforced edges and pronounced T spine. Massive elephant ivory grips with good age patina (later). The grip strap and bolsters are steel finely decorated with gold inlay work. The scabbard is wood covered with pale velvet and mounted with Gold inlaid steel mounts. Total length (in scabbard) 16 inches. Very good condition. Original untouched blade polish and etch. A very impressive high quality item.
