Very Fine Wootz Khanjarli Dagger - 0702

The Khanjarli, one of the rarest and most sought after dagger in the Indian weaponry. It is charectaized by its strongly re-curving blade and wide lunette shaped pommel. This one is a very fine example, with 8 inches multi-fullered blade forged from wootz (Damascus) steel and elaborately decorated with silver koftgari work. The lunette shaped pommel and grips are Ivory, riveted to the tang with gold rosettes. The scabbard is wood, covered with fabric and mounted with original big silver mounts. Very good condition. One rosette is missing on the rear side and the scabbard mounts are slightly damaged. A very fine piece
