A Dangerous Weapon - Fascinating!

Katra is the name of a special dagger found in India. This is an 'Indian punch dagger', that unlike a sword is not swung, and unlike a knife is not slashed, but was meant for stabbing duels.

That kind of close up battle has special rules, and the dagger is designed in such a way to protect the wielder. The dagger's holdings show beautiful carvings in the images of an elephant, a wild boar, leaves and flowers, which gives it a unique and impressive character.

But there is an even more interesting part, because in addition to the 24 cm long blade, it also comes with two pistols on both sides of the holding area and each 5 cm long. The existence of this extraordinary weapon casts doubt on the famous quote: "Never bring a knife to a gun fight!".
