Paper Title
A Descriptive Study on Medieval Indian Edged Weapons
  Sauradeep Nath

The edge weapons, such as, swords, dagger, axes and spears, have always been a counterpart of a warrior before the dawn of fire arm. Apart from dagger which are still in use, other edge weapons have fallen into oblivion, to be found only in museums and privy collections. India has a rich martial tradition since the time of the Vedas which continued throughout the successive periods. This paper, thus, tries to bring into light the age-old weapons of Medieval Indian soldiers while limiting itself to the boundaries of edged-weapons. In doing so the paper attempts to catalogue and describe the war armaments forged by the Delhi Sultans and later by the Mughals. For convenience, the paper is divided into four segments, each dealing with a form of edged-weapon, vis-à-vis, swords, daggers, axes and spears.

Keywords- Sword, dagger, spear, axe
