Rare Indian double dagger 'Zirah Bhonk", approx 33cm overall with 21cm recurved blade of good mechanical Damascus steel with complex forging and a most pronounced armour piercing tip. The hilt, bolsters and part of the back edge decorated with gold koftgari floral and geometric patterns. When combined (by means of interlocking bayonet type catches on the inner faces) the two daggers form a single dagger. See "Stone's Glossary" figure 875 for a one piece example of somewhat similar form.
