Very Rare 18 C. Indian Blade Projectile
Date: 18 C.
This unusual and rare Indian weapon is composed of three steel double edge blades fullered and deadly sharp, connected together to form a chain like throwing weapon ending with two steel balls with faceted faces. Blades are probably forged from pattern welded steel. one of the blade is stamped with a maker mark.
The use of this weapon is not very clear. May be it is a throwing blades device operate in a way similar to the use of the South American throwing Bola
Balls 2 inch diameter. Blades length 9 inches each. Total length (fully stretched) 31 inches. Very good condition with good untouched age patina. We have not seen many of this very rare weapon. Indian, 18 C.
