Sales enquiries

Perhaps the rarest form of the Arab Jambiya is the Gusbi from Hadramaut, an arid coastal area in the South of Yemen aside the Arabian Sea. Whereas the blade and handle are similar to those on other Arabian Jambiya, the Gusbi is characterized by a considerably up-curved scabbard pommel.

11 7/8 Inches overall, the 7 15/16 inch blade is in very good order and firm in the hilt. The rhino horn hilt with silver work detail is equally in good condition. The magnificent leather base scabbard with inset red stones / glass is also in very good shape. The jambiya sheathes and draws well.

A truly scarce item and well worth the investment price of £600. Please quote item reference T54. Full sized / further images available upon request. Box 0754-60x30x15 (1.359).
