Very Good 18C. Kattar Push Dagger with Pattern Welded Blade
Date: 18 C.
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. It is probably coming from the Deccan 15 C. Earlier Kattars specifically from central and south India were composed of a separate blade, either specifically forged or cut down from a sword blade which was riveted to the handle. late Kattars were forge d from a single steel ingot.
The Kattar offered here is an early exemplar, 18 C. Double edge straight blade riveted to nicely chiseled langets. The blade is forged from very good pattern welded steel. Most probably a secondary use of an earlier sword blade.
Blade 13 1/2 inches long. Total length 19 inches. Very good condition.
