A fine and rare 19th century “Moplah” sword from the Malabar Coast, South India. It is the traditional sword of the Moplah or Mappila people – an Islamic community originating from early Arab contact through trading in South India. An impressive and very decorative item, surely made for a man of status.
The sword employs a high carbon steel blade, with a sharp edge and a very ornately brass mounted wooden handle. The lower part is solid brass, decorated with black enamel, and shares design features with the Adya Katti sword, used by their Hindu neighbours the Coorgs. The pommel end is timber set with brass roundels and chased brass strips.

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves
