An interesting South Indian style katar with an imported European blade.
With a hidden compartment for a small utility knife.
A rare example with pattern welded blade, retaining its original scabbard.
The hilt inlaid with silver, once blued for added contrast.
Covered almost entirely in very fine "sadeli" marquetry that is associated primarily with Gujarat.
