A rarer variety with a hilt that takes inspiration from the kora and talwar.
With iron, silver overlaid hilt. Its associated scabbard features fine quillwork.
Thought to have been presented by the Royal House of Nepal.
The scabbard carved as to closely mimic a tooled leather scabbard.
Its scabbard with 12 pockets, with 10 of the items remaining.
With wide blade and a two-tone hilt in cattle bone and wood, capped with brass.
