The Haladie may look like a fantasy weapon or an artistic fancy at first glance, but it is in fact a martial arts weapon of the Rajput warrior clans of India who did not shy away from mastering some of the most exotic looking martial arts weaponry in history. The origin of the Haladie is difficult to discern but outside of India it was known in Syria and similar weapons can be found as far as Sudan. In skilled hands the Haladie can parry and strike quickly from surprising angles and it is a deceptively capable puncturing weapon in the thrust.
This Haladie has twin blades forged from damascus steel; as evidenced by the swirling, patterned design on the blades which were created when two different steels were pounded together into a single blade by the weaponsmith. Steel made from blending the qualities of separate steels was well known to the ancient and medieval smiths of India who were exceptionally proficient in its creation and demand for their steel created a robust overland trade between India and the Middle East.
The two blades are formed together a single solid piece with a connecting handle to create a highly durable construction. The composite grip is formed from central scales of finely polished bone surmounted by blackened pakkawood. Brass rivets pounded directly into the tang anchor these components into place. Included with the Haladie is a durable sheath of thick leather with stitched and steel-riveted construction. Integrated onto the sheath is a belt loop and a pair of buttoned retaining straps.
