The Kattar push dagger is one of the most common and known blades of the Indian arsenal. It comes in endless number of sizes, shapes , styles, decoration and quality.

The blade   is riveted to finely chiseled extensions of the handle. Chiseled and pierced side bars and finely chiseled cross bars.

Blade 13 inches long. Total length 21 inches. Good condition to age. Lightly blackened spots on the blade.
