"Mughal miniatures show the Rajput adoption of the asa shamshir and a curved saber at the waist. However, in personal portraits the Rajputs maintained their traditional arms: broadsword blades with substantial tulwar hilts -- the pommel disk considerably larger than the usual Mughal type -- and very long katars."
