Product Description

An impressive, ornately decorated Wahabite Jambiya dagger in good condition.

The Wahabite is the largest jambiya because its blade length isn't as curved as shorter versions. The blade is double edged, without a central spine and two shallow fullers. There are some old rust stains but in the main it is still nice and bright. The hilt is made wood in a cruciform shape, covered with silver straps and large silver pearl nodules. The scabbard is made of wood, which is bound in silver on the top third and brass below. Between them is a leather band of snakeskin.

The term Wahabite is a general name for the people of Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Locally this type of jambiya is called a Sabak (Hejaz) or Sebiki (Yemeni).

Size: 60 cm (23 5/8 inches)
Length blade: 44 cm (17 1/4 inches)
