18th Century Wootz Spear Head




An interesting spearhead formerly of the Brian Cooley collection.


This spearhead is likely from South India as indicated by the prominent use of the tiger on the haft. Interestingly this blade has bands of wootz around the blade showing some scarf welds and a potential repair or modification. The tip is a broad armour-piercing type similar to that on a katar.


This spearhead can be yours for £425 or best offer.
