Fine Antique 19th C. Arab Omani Al Bu Saidi Khanjar Jambiya Dagger
|( ID: id743 )|
A very fine example of an Al Bu Saidi type of khanjar from Oman. This example is in very fine condition, heavily silver mounted with a fine horn handle of excellent quality. The seven ring mounts on the scabbard and silver belt fittings denote it as having belonged to an important individual. The blade is a strong forged example and in fine condition. The silver work is especially fine quality.
This example came from a fine collection of khanjars of which we were able to purchase the three finest examples and which we offer in this sale. See the three pieces together in the last photograph below.
Overall length is 13", blade is 7".
