19th century Katar Push Dagger


A 19th century Katar Push Dagger. The Katar is a type of push dagger from India.The weapon is characterized by its H-shaped horizontal hand grip which results in the blade sitting above the user’s knuckles. Unique to the Indian subcontinent, it is the most famous and characteristic of Indian daggers. Ceremonial katars were also used in worship.

This nice example has been finely made of watered and polished steel and would have been crafted by a courtly intern in Rajasthan. Circa 1800-1850. Nice wear and patina to it.
