Well as weapons, the fact they've had corrosion removed increases their quality. 

As antiques that decreases it, but that being said I have no idea what the seller is expecting. 

They're beautiful shastars though.

Two antique gold and silver gauga yamuna tulwars for sale

one comes with the orginal scabbard.

18th c pieces.

serious buyers DM.

How do you know they are from the 1700s? Have you had them carbon-dated?

Why could they not easily be from any other time period, even the 20th century?

@BhForce it comes with experience and handling antique arms and armour day to day. as it is the same with puratan manuscripts. most sikhs can't tell the difference between a real live blade and a dull showpiece, in regards to weight, edge retention, fit , feel ,shape, you can tell from the quality of the finish , the colour, the thickness of the old and silver work, the designs, polishes etc. etc. most sikhs can't tell the difference between a real antique and a fake aged one from India due to the lack of gyan in that area. Whatever area you study you become proficient in that mode of study.

its sad to say most Sikhs aren't even interested in items such as original jung tested and jung worthy shaster relating directly to their heritage and dharma, whilst goray are collecting them like pokemon cards and sell them like any other antiques.

OK, bro, but assuming you have an expert who could recognize all those qualities, could the same expert not also replicate all those qualities in a replica? Is there any technology available in 18th century India not available to worksmiths today?

Thanks, for pm, I have a couple of antiques in my possession and looking to grow my collection, unfortunately im a little out priced on this occasion.

Can you provide a little more information for would be buyers and my own curiosity? 

Both are eautiful blades and in remarkable condition considering the age. Have you done/had any restoration work done on either piece?

What material are the blades? Iron/wootz? 

Any history of past users/caretakers?

    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Also Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original.
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
