AS542: Large Kora Sword

A fine large and heavy Kora sword with very wide tip from Nepal or Northern India. These unusual weapons were used both in battle and for animal sacrifice ceremonies. The finely forged blade is sharp on the concave side and comes to a thick and massive tip for a very powerful cut. The double hollow ground blade has a very thick back edge and the "eye" is only on one side of the blade. The handle is all steel, and the overall piece has a good patina from age and use.    

27 1/2" overall with a 21" blade that is 8" wide at the tip. 19th century, Nepal.    ....Sold
