Sales enquiries

A very good Omani / Saudi jambiya, the silver work is above average. The grip is silver on horn. The 7 1/4 inch steel blade is firm in the grip. There is some wear damage to the base skirt of the grip section which indicates the metal, at least there, is solid silver. A lovely silver rich jambiya for only £?. Please quote item reference number L61 (1203). Full sized / further images available upon request.

92%+ Silver content result: We conducted a professional acid silver test on an obscure part of this Jambiya. The acid solution turned blood red, indicating 92%+ silver content, and stayed that colour, indicating the item (hilt) is either solid silver (in places, at least where we tested) or is very thick silver plating (see below for image of test).
