A good traditional working Yemeni / Syrian
silvered Jambiya (sold).
In good condition, a traditional Yemeni, possibly Syrian silvered
Jimbaya, probably 19/20C.
Clearly not a tourist piece, this jambiya was made for traditional
use. The 8 inch dagger blade sheathes and draws very smoothly and
easily. The hardwood hilt / grip with what must be solid silver
work; the front side studded with small silver nails. The leather
scabbard, probably camel skin is in good order. This is a lovely
item and worth every penny. Full sized photos available upon request.
Item reference number is 989.
