The Gold decorated hilt is a very desirable full wootz type.
To the base of the grip, the quillon lobes, the tips on the langets and the long narrow faces of the grip, these all display gold covered raised Bubris motifs, motifs made famous by India's legendary Tipu Sultan.
Sword with these distinct motifs are extremely rare and never seen in the market place.
The blade is the very desirable dark wootz, aka Kara Khorasan. The blade is well preserved with only minor blemished. Its surfaces display a cllear wootz pattern throughout and a defined dark hardened edge.
Each face of the blade has a long thin fuller just above the half way point and above this, four evenly spaced fullers that are separated by the Cintamani "three dot" motifs.
