Really, really good to see this. Great to see these guys at work, and pick up little things like the temporary grips/handles on the still being forged blades. Thank you.

Your post reminded me to record this one of my own. Plain Buffalo horn hilt, no scabbard, and bought as a "place holder" for the type.
Interestingly, on another site it claimed that plain wood was...

Thank you for that information. It explains the differences this has from the other Jambiya I have had, purportedly from the Yemen.

Looks like a decent 18th to early 20th century trade knife of standard form, in a very nice beaded scabbard of "woodlands" Indian (First Nations) pattern. Nice one!
