19th C. Sudanese Persian Kindjal Dagger خنجر
|( ID: id778 )|
A truly interesting item. This example is a 19th C. Sudanese dagger, likely Dinka, mounted with a 19th C. Persian, or possibly Armenian blade from a small kindjal, inlaid with numerous gold animals and with the original scabbard and even handle mount which is seen on the pommel of the black ebony wood handle. This piece has likely seen several thousand miles just in its construction and the tales which it could tell would especially interesting. 12" overall.
