The katar is a type of push dagger that originated in the Indian subcontinent. It is characterized by its H-shaped handle, which allows the wielder to grip the weapon firmly and deliver powerful thrusting attacks.
The blade of the katar is typically made of steel and can range in length from a few inches to over a foot. The blade is usually double-edged, with a central ridge that runs down the middle. The shape of the blade varies, but it is usually triangular or diamond-shaped, with a pointed tip that can penetrate armor.
The handle of the katar is made of wood, ivory, or metal and is designed to fit around the wielder’s knuckles, allowing for a strong grip and better control of the weapon. The handle also often features decorative elements such as carvings or gemstones.
The katar was a popular weapon among Indian warriors and was particularly effective against armored opponents. It was often used in close combat situations.
