An unusual and Large mid-20th Century Arab Jambiya Dagger. This is quite an impressive piece and comprises a large decorated white metal hilt with a bulbous wooden insert. The blade is quite thick and sharpened with some simple dot decoration near the blade forte. The jambiya comes complete with its original white metal scabbard that fits the hilt and blade very well.
Probably from the mid-20th Century
These Arab jambiya daggers are always difficult to date as the style and pattern of Arab jambiyas have not changed for several hundred years. I would say that this is a 20th Century piece but probably not post-mid century. In very good overall condition. Blade length is 8.5 inches (16.5 inches overall).
