19 C. Indian Bichwa Daggers, Matched Pair - 7578

Very Rare! A matched pair of Bichwa Daggers: One for the right hand and one for the left hand. Bichwa means ‘The Scorpion Sting’ and its slender sharp re-curving blade perfectly justify Its name. The blades are double edged, re-curving, 81/2 inches long each, with a flat cross section at the top and with the lower 5 inches thickening to a diamond cross section perfectly designed for armor piercing. The hilts are brass, ring shaped and riveted to the top of the blades. Wood scabbards covered with the original black leather and mounted with pierced brass tips. Total length 14 ½ inches. Very good condition.
