Sales enquiries

12 1/2 Inches overall, the 6 inch blade is in good order and firm in the hilt. The rhino horn hilt with silver work detail in aged but sound condition. The leather sheath with inset red stones / glass is aged and has some old wire work support (this jambiya has clearly been worn for many years). The jambiya sheathes and draws well.

A scarce item and a bargain at £600. Please quote item reference T38. Full sized / further images available upon request. Box 0767-60x30x15 (1.285).
