Primary Material: Tempered Steel In India one finds a very similar weapon to the shamshir called a 'tulwar' or ‘talwar’, a saber with a similarly pronounced curve, but a broader blade than a shamshir and usually featuring less acute of a point. Tulwars have a small, tight handle, the grip itself is strait rather than canted like some other sabers, and typically consisting of minimal quillions with a roundel pommel which makes for a very snug grip. The tulwar also often has a sharpened false-edge. Like all sabers, these are specialized slashing weapons originally designed for use from horseback. Historically these elegant swords were used by Persian, Hindu, Sikh, and Mughal cavalry. The tulwar in particular was popular with the Sikhs, though eclipsed by the Khanda and the Kirpan (see Jambayia) in Religious importance, the tulwar is the weapon of Rajput cavalry and is the basis of the martial sport Gatka which is still practiced today by Sikhs all around the world.
