- Culture: Nepalese or North Indian
- Medium: steel
- Measurements: 26 1/2” overall with a 21” blade that is 4 1/2” wide at the tip and 3/8” thick at the back edge
This is a large and heavy Kora sword from Nepal or Northern India. These unusual weapons were used both in battle and for animal sacrifice ceremonies. The finely forged blade is sharp on the concave side and comes to a thick and massive tip for a very powerful cut. The fullered blade has a very thick back edge and the “eye” has slight red fill in the background. The handle is made of steel.
