Unusual Indian sword with Hooked 'Kora' blade

 An old Indian weapon, a form of sword with an inward curving hooked blade similar to the Nepalese Kukri or Kora.  The blade is of very good steel possibly damascus with a thickened back edge and delicate shaped facetting to the blade surface. The steel hilt is of tulwar form, and finely decorated with silver all remaining in remarkably pristine condition. The blade with a nice dark uncleaned patina, no pitting, would clean up to a fine smooth surface if required.  A genuine antique fighting piece dating to the 19th century. Indian, indo persian, tulwar, damascened, koftgari kofgari,
