The Tulwar Sword (also known as Talwar), Originated in Persia, and became the most preferred Weapon throughout Indo Persia, and was especially desired by the Cavalry. The grip was held with four fingers, with the index-finger thrusting forward, extending over the bottom quillon in the groove which allowed this Sword to become an excellent, balanced extension of the Warrior's arm, making it a deadly weapon to one's opponent.
