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).
