    Indeed, a nice sword. I expect there are a lot of repros around, but this one
    does look like it has some age and patina. The wide blade is unusual
    and the engravings/stampings are an interesting touch.

    This type is a bit out of my collecting sphere, so I really cannot
    comment on it, but I do love swords.........

    Hi paddy around here they will bring around 125.00$ my local shop has 2 of the Tulwar style.
    There are not alot of collectors for them they are very crudely made but they are part of history.

    This is in my oppinion, the ultimate of swords, i would hate to come up against it, the power in it, when swung is amazing, twisting of the wrist, gives it maximum force, but as an ornament it is a really nice artistic piece as well, it has been a real conversation topper, anyone who i have shown it to, really admired it, it is a pity that they are not highly sought after

    I don't think you will find another one of these too easy, anywhere in the world, the animals and wide blade,
    together are almost impossible, to find especially for a tegha over 200 years old, and in this, excellent condition probably except for in India, i was already offered 500Euro for it, but turned it down i expect to hold on until i get at least 800Euro,
