Indian 19 century Bichuwa dagger %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
The Bichuwa or Bichawa is a dagger with a loop hilt and a narrow dual edged lightly wavy blade, sometimes just double blades. It is named for its resemblance to the sting of a scorpion, for which the Hindi name is bichuwa. The weapon originated in South India, and as it is being relatively easy to make it rapidly spread all over the subcontinent, and was in use well into the 20th century as a weapon and as a decorative dagger.

This example has a finely engraved brass loop hilt with two narrow dual double edged blades. A particularly rare and fine example.
