14" length with 9 3/8" recurved blade with thick armor piercing point. Both sides decorated with silver koftgari in repeated panels of naturalistic foliage. That feature is specifically attributed to the reign of Shah Jahan and earlier, pre-1658. Bolster and tang band decorated to match with about 70% silver remaining. Iron quite bright with a few negligible oxidation spots. Two piece ivory or bone grips, most likely ivory. The right excellent. The left with partial crack and surface a little abraded in antiquity. Egerton refers to this form (his 617) as a Pesh Kabz, though the blade is not of T back section commonly associated with the pesh kabz.
