Rajput Tulwar

  • Dated: 19th century
  • Place of Origin: India
  • Measurements: overall length: 35.5in (900mm). Blade length: 30.5in (775mm) 

The steel hilt is profusely covered with thick gold Koftgari designs, with every face of the hilt having Indian inscriptions, which are believed to be in the Sanskrit language, and are likely to be Hindu “Shloka’s” or Religious Mantra’s. The blade is forged from Indian Pattern Welded Damascus steel – sometimes referred to as ‘Birds eye’. The original (or very old) scabbard is red velvet, with a cord to keep the sword in the scabbard. The amount of inscriptions is highly unusual – usually, on these types of swords there are a few words on the pommel disk – so this is a very rare find.

the title of my autobiography is going to be “that’s not how you spell my name”

Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince  (via libranta)


This city was once the jewel of our kingdom. A place of light and beauty and music. And so it shall be once more! Let the armies of Mordor know this: Never again will the land of my people fall into enemy hands. This city of Osgiliath has been reclaimed for Gondor! For Gondor!
