Indo-Persian Scissors Katar (Jamadhar Sehlikaneth)
Steel construction with broad 7 3/4" split double-edged outer blade bearing a geometric decoration of inlaid silver wire; squeeze grip separates the blade to reveal a plain 6 3/4" double-edged inner blade. Typical long side guard bars. All steel parts feature inlaid silver wire decoration (minor losses). Similar example illustrated in Fig. 219, "Islamic Weapons, Maghrib to Moghul", by Anthony Tirri. Better quality and condition than usually encountered. Overall length 16", width 3 7/8". Probably dates to the early 19th C.
