Circa 90% Silver content result: We conducted a professional acid silver test on an obscure part of this Jambiya. The acid solution turned light blood red, indicating around 90% 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).
