Sales enquiries

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 commensurate with age. £(selling price divulged for small fee) . Please quote item reference number M56 (1249). Full sized / further images available upon request.

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).
