Original Victorian Era Indian Pata Gauntlet Long Sword. Sn 20200 - 20200
Pata swordsmen of the 17th century through to the Victorian era were specially trained in the use of this weapon, and could be extremely accurate with this somewhat unusual sword form. Peculiar to the Indian subcontinent, these broadswords had a protective gauntlet or armguard of steel, the grip being set at right angles to the blade (see page 485 item 6 of Stone’s A Glossary Of Arms & Armor where a Pata with similar gauntlet form as ours is illustrated). The steel gauntlet on this example has nice age darkened patina. The sword has a 34 ½” flat steel double edged blade and measures 47” overall. The blade is riveted to the ornate extended tang of the Gauntlet. The blade is undamaged with even aged patina. The inside of the gauntlet has a steel bar grip set across the inside of the fist part of the gauntlet. The 'cuff' of the gauntlet has a curved fore arm bar/ bracelet which hooks into 2 holes, one either side of the gauntlet. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20200
