Really nice price. It's not calling to me the way some others have though. It's just me wanting to pull the trigger. Thats a bad sign if it's just me..

If that 18.5"/28oz Hanuman were a 18.5"/28oz Garuda instead, I would have snapped it up. (A friend of mine has a Garuda fixation, I'll leave it at that).

I have the brother to that horn handled Hanuman, it's a very nice piece, so nice it'll not see much use unless Zombie hordes arise.

Phew! Saved from the tarwar. Nice fuller and design on blade and handle.

Rajkumar is a bit hit and miss with his tarwars. Some of his, like today, have a slight taper down the blade and especially toward the tip, like the fat version of a short tibetan sword. But other times, like the one from 8/1, he really nails it with a nice classic profile and fatter sweep to the tip. I have a chiruwa tarwar on order and really hope it looks like the latter.
