Default The Omani Spear.

Salaams All, Here is my only reference to Omani Spears for Forum Library.

FROM PAGE 453 "Richardson and Dorr" The Craft Herritage of Oman ~

ar rumh meaning "the spear" It may be noted that Rumh was derived from Roman, and a name for long leaf or long bladed describe the spear ..and that when gunpowder weapons arrived the long barrelled abu futtilla also became known as Rumhi.. a historical tie back to the days of the spear.

Quote "The exhibit has iron blades with wooden shafts. Length of blade angled lower blade 38 cm on a 160 cm wooden shaft, flat blade above 48cm on a 261 cm wooden shaft". Unquote.
