During the 1800's the British Empire was hell bent on gobbling up as much of theIndian sub-continent as they could, seizing dominion with massive fire power andthe point of the bayonet.
But when the British attempted to subdue the Sikhs and other martial clans theyreceived a very rude awakening!
Suddenly soldiers and cavalrymen alike began literally losing their heads â€“ notto mention their arms and legs- to a fearful Indo-Persian sword called the Talwar!
With it's razor sharp broad, curved blade it stopped the British cold in many battlesand inflicted unheard of losses and the most ghastly wounds imagible.
Now, almost two hundred years later Cold Steel has harnessed the fearsome cuttingpower of one of the world's most renowned swords in a tactical folder that we believeis truly worthy of the me Talwar.
Designed by celebrated custom knife-maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel PresidentLynn C Thompson, the largest of our diverse new Talwar series boasts the widestblade available (measuring a full 2" wide!). Flat ground, with a continuously curvedcutting edge from choil to upswept point it offers cutting and piercing power hithertouvailable in a folding knife.
To compliment the Talwar's razor edge and lethal point we developed a truly exceptiolhandle.
Made from American G-10, it's textured and contoured pistol grip handle featuresstrategically placed finger grooves for comfort and safety, and to further protectyour precious fingers from this formidable blade, we have equipped the Talwar withour industry-leading Tri-Ad lock. Tried and tested, this super safe locking mechanismhas proven to be unequalled by any folding knife lock in the industry â€“ at any price!
Faster on the draw than any switchblade, our Talwar comes equipped with Andrew Demko'srevolutiory ambidextrous thumb plate. By draw-sgging the knife on a pocket theawesome power of the Talwar can be in your hand at the speed of lightning!
