Day four of the Swordvent Calendar and here for you today are four silver inlaid Indo-Persian weapons.

Silver on bare, black or blued iron and steel is one of the most beautiful combinations to my eyes and it is a theme that is continuous in all my weapon collecting with silver and steel featuring in most of my favorite weapons  and whilst I think the British have the monopoly on solid silver hilts and fittings I believe the Indians of old have the most eye catching inlay, making these deadly weapons of war works of art.
