Product Description

An antique fine quality Omani Jambiya with a Rhino horn handle and decorated in ornate silver cladding.

The jambiya has a traditional curved blade with the double edge and central spine. It slots neatly in the curved scabbard. The scabbard is intricately decorated with applied silver filigree wire arabesques on silver. On the back it is covered on a waxed cloth. The scabbard is suspended by silver rings bound by silver twist wire.

The jambiya is worn by men, sometimes symbolizing the transition from child to men, for ceremonial occasions. Jambiyas have been worn along the whole of North Africa, the Middle-East and the Indian sub-continent, with variations depending on which nation or tribe it belongs to. The material of the handles is one characteristic of value. The most expensive Jambiyas are made of Rhino horn with silver. Please note that due to Cites regulations, we cannot export to outside the EU.
