Fantastic Early Ottoman Dagger, likely 18th C. wootz and encrusted gold blade

( ID: id678 )

A beautiful 18th C. Ottoman Turkish of kindjal shape. This example has a solid grip of fine age, with a finely formed large wootz blade with a medial ridge on both side. The ricasso of the blade on both sides is chiseled with gold koftgari overlaid, with numerous Q'uranic verses and imprecations.  The scabbard is from a kindjal and is later, but fits well and was originally with the dagger.

Overall length - 19"

Blade - 13 3/4"
