With all the use of swords in Mughal history, I can't believe that I couldn't find any common easily understandable native word for BLADE in any Urdu Dictionary! Sure there is "استرہ" but that means "Shaving Razor." The English loanword "بلیڈ" is a bit too embarrassing to say as the monosyllabic "Blade" is turned into the disyllabic "Ba-layd" in Urdu. Also I don't think the Arabic شفرة nor the Persian تیغه are intelligible to Urdu speakers so borrowing isn't going to work either. Please help.
