Jambiya Dagger from Western Yemen - 14800
This Jambiya comes most probably from western Yemen. The significant shape of the silver hilt is also known as Zabidi style. This style of silver handles mostly goes with whole silver scabbard, but in this case it is replaced with a simpler leather scabbard, probably to replace a damaged or lost original one. Very fine 7 1/2 inches well made blade with a pronounced central rib. Very fine silver hilt with side horns to the pommel. Total length 14 1/2 inches. Very good condition.
