The Sossun Pattah is a northern Indian weapon associated with the Indo-Persian influence of the Maharattas of Rajastahn. The recurved Indo-Persian sword has a blade shape similar to an Indian willow leaf, hence the name Sossun Patta in Urdu. Most known examples date to the 18th Century.

The 640mm (measured in a straight line) single-edged blade has exaggerated downward and upward curves. The recurved blade has a flat spine and terminates in a spear point. The first two-thirds of the blade are sharp.

The blade is in very good condition with small patches of tarnish and forging marks.

The robust steel hilt has a baluster style grip and long, clubbed languets. The hilt terminates with a disc pommel, incorporating a dome and skull crusher spike. The cross-guard has domed finials and continues into a recurved knuckle bow with a scrolled terminal. The blade is firm in the hilt.

This is an excellent and rare example of a late 18th Century northern Indian sossun pattah.
