Hooded Katara Dagger

  • Dated: mid 16th century
  • Place of Origin: South India (Srirangam or Tanjore)
  • Measurements: overall length: 22in (560mm). Blade length: 15in (380mm)

A similar weapon exists in the Metropolitan Museum, New York (No.36.25.905) and is pictured on page 146 (fig.15.3) in the “Hindu Arms & Ritual” book by Robert Elgood.

This particular one was locally made, featuring a multi fullered blade. The shell guard, or hood, ends with a yali finial. There are overlaid steel borders, which interestingly have fine rope twist decoration.

Made in Islamic style, the katar has four cusp arch design where the hilt meets the blade.

"Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal. The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing. His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture.” [source]
