Bladed Weapons of the East  
 
     
 

Talwar

A curved steel sword from India, the Talwar is an excellent slashing weapon with a sharp tip that could be used for thrusting when necessary. Those in museums and private collections often have blades which depict family histories and great battles.

The blade is derived from early mongol sabers(what is now the Chinese Dao).
