Late 1800's, Indian Jambiya Arab Knife With Polished Bone Hilt, Elephants Device Pommel & Curved Double Edged Etched Panels. ED 2480 - ED 2480

The Jambiya also known as the Arab knife is in some modification found in every country in which the Arabs have lived. The blade is always curved and double edged. The finest quality examples of these knives are found in Persia & India (see pages 310 to 314 of ‘A Glossary Of The Construction Decoration & Use Of Arms & Armour by Stone where many variants of Jambiya are described and illustrated). This is an excellent Indian Jambiya made sometime in the late 1800's. It has a typical 9 ¾” long double edged dramatically curved steel blade with correct medial ridges on both sides. Both sides of the blade have hand tooled decorative panels in Indian form. The solid polished bone hilt is undamaged and has scalloped steel fittings including pommel cap mounted with 2 Elephants (which adds to the indicators that this is an Indian piece). The dagger measures 14 ¾” overall length. As is common this Jambiya is without scabbard. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2480
