Default OMANI KHANJAR with SHAFRA and BELT

A very nice old silver mounted Omani Khanjar for sale, complete with Shafra (back knife), and belt with Omani buckle. The leather belt is stamped with the letters R F A and an impression of (I think) a mosque surmounted by a crown. The handle is horn of some sort.
This Khanjar was collected in Nizwa in the early 1970s by a mercenary then serving with the Sultans Armed Forces (Sultan Qaboos).
The Khanjar predates 1970 as it does not bear the Arms of Sultan Qaboos who came to power in that year after overthrowing his father in a Palace coup. Later examples usually (but not always) showed his Coat of Arms on the silver belt buttons.
The Khanjar blade appears to be hand forged from a single piece of iron/steel.
US$425 including worldwide Airmail.
Payment by PAYPAL ONLY
