Curved Kard Knife, Wootz steel - 6067

A very unusual form of the Indo-Persian Kard knife with a down curving 10 inches heavy blade forged from very good Wootz steel. Also the grip bolsters are forges from Wootz steel. The grips are carved from the inner section of a walrus ivory tusk and the grip strap is silver. The scabbard is wood covered with fabric with a copper tip. Very good condition. The scabbard is recent.
