Very Fine Wootz Karud Dagger

14382 Category:

Origin: North India

Date: mid 19 C.


The name Karud is common between collectors and refers to the heavy   dagger with a strong T shaped straight spine and down curving grip pommel,  which defers from the Pesh Kabz dagger with the double curving blade with similar shaped handle. The name itself and its origin was a source of arguments and debates on the net. We prefer to stick to the name Karud as it is mostly known between collectors.

The Karud offered here is coming from India, mid 19 C. , most probably from North India. The blade with strong T spine and reinforced edges is forged from good watered steel (wootz) of clear high contrast pattern. Steel bolster. Massive grips attached to the blade tang with two rivets and gilded rosettes. The Spine as well as the  bolsters and the  steel grip strap are richly decorated with gold koftgari work.

Blade 11 inches. Total length 15 inches. Very good condition. No scabbard. Authentic mid 19 C. dagger.
