19th Century Silver Omani Jambiya with belt/strap,
92%+ Silver, for sale
In good general condition, a good 19th Century Silver Omani Jambiya
with belt / strap, 92%+ Silver
A very high quality and old Omani jambiya, the silver work to the
sheath is excellent. We tested an obscure section of the hilt and
the result was 92%+ silver content (see test photo below; the dark
red from this specialist acid test shows the silver content is above
92%). Overall length 11 1/2 inches. The 6 3/4 inch blade is in good
condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt, sheath and belt are all
aged commensurate with age, but sound / good. This is an old jambiya
for sure and well worth £450. Please quote item reference
number S66. Full sized / further images available upon request.
