For over a century most of the Western world has remained convinced that a point-oriented thrusting sword is superior to an edge-oriented cutting sword. There are however a series of books by D.A. Kinsley that cast a skeptical light on this running debate. Kinsley recounts numerous incidents (collected form battlefields throughout the British Empire) where cutting swords proved equal if not superior to thrusting swords in deciding the outcome of a skirmish.
Taking a cue from the most experienced Indian Swordsmen of the past and the Pindari chief of old Amir Khan Lynn has combined a strongly curved British Light Cavalry blade with its distinctive hatchet point (wider near the tip than the fort ) with a traditionally styled Indian hilt.
The blade is hand forged from tough 1055 Carbon steel and features a broad fuller and a razor edge. The hilt is equally well made. Fashioned from brass with an intricately decorated surface it offers short thick quillons a single knuckle bow and the traditional dish shaped pommel to lock in your hand.
Supplied with an excellent scabbard made of wood covered in black leather and capped at either end with a thick brass throat and chape our Indian Talwar is a ferociously effective cutting sword that will serve you well on or off the battlefield.
