Fun Find #2

I was recently reading  a Collector’s Guide to Swords, Daggers, and Cutlasses. This sword called a Pata sword, or a gauntlet sword, caught my attention. It is an Indian weapon that looks amazing and I’m sure has inspired many fantasy weapons.  There are some really beautiful gauntlet swords, but sadly I only found those images in the book.  The book itself was a really nice overview of history of various countries and described many types of swords. Its a good basic book on the subject. It talks briefly about collecting and rarities.  My only complaint is that not every type of weapon had an image, but I guess that is where Google comes in. Here is a site with a tidbit on Indian swords (and many others).
