Work to Hilt, sold
In good condition, a scarce 19th Century Yemeni Jambiya with 92%+
Silver (solid silver or thick plate) work to Hilt.
A good scarce Yemeni silver and hide jambiya with horn hilt. The
8 1/2 inch steel blade is firm in the grip. General age and wear

92%+ Silver content result: We conducted a professional acid silver
test on two obscure parts 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).
