My Kurdish Jambiyah has a wood grip without the rosettes., but they all, as far as I've seen are the same size & shape, all pretty much exact twins. And...
as a hidden bonus, many if not most are WOOTZ, and thus NOT recent manufacture. Mine came sans scabbard.One of our other kind members had a spare, which he donated in the hopes it might work. It does. Fits it perfectly.

No fancy engraving, coins, wire work, gold, silver, jewels, silk, etc. They don't need any of that. They are all deadly beauties, and the wootz ones are classy enough for anyone. They stand out from the crowd on their own and are almost instantly recognisable from the other khanjar/jambiyah mob.
