Sainti-Indo-Persian Parrying Weapon for Sale

Price: $850

Add to Cart

An extremely rare and unusual bladed Parrying Weapon from India, with a forged and carved armor-piercing steel blade attached to a forged and shaped bow guard. This weapon was carried in lieu of a shield, and was used to parry, trap and block, as well as to thrust, slash and cudgel.  

The weapon is made entirely of hot-forged steel, hand-filed, polished and blued. The double-edged blade has a filed spine and a pierced base, and the tang is forge-riveted through the formed steel hand guard. The guard pierces the grip and is welded through.

The forged steel haft is formed from heavy tube, tapered top and bottom, with disk and ball contours. A forged steel collar and hollow ball pommel finishes each end. The ends pierce the ball and are forge-riveted through a decorative steel flower, and peined to form the flowers’ centers.

The grip is wrapped with dark brown deer skin and tan elk skin, hand-stretched and sewn onto the haft.

The weapon is 29” overall from ball to ball. The blade extends 6” beyond the knuckle bow, and is 11” from grip to tip.

Companion piece to Zaghnal (18th Century Indian War Hammer).
