Very handsome piece. The blade seems a bit worn down at the edges, but I can't really tell from a photo. Small relative to its furniture; is that typical?

Nothing exceeds like excess.


That said, there's room in my collection for these, but insufficient volume in the exchequer.

Looks like a so-called "gusbi" jambiya from the Hadramout area of Yemen.

Not a tourist item, and not commonly seen. Congratulations on a nice find.

Fascinating to see this, thank you.

The cordage used to fasten the armor to the arms looks modern. Is that the case?

I agree with comments regarding chain, and square attachments.

Metalwork is pretty crude; poor design and execution. That's probably some kind of clue, but I'm unsure how to interpret it. There are...
