Thank you Ed, The regional general designs are tuned to a central likeness with specific designs from area to area. The linked websites of omanisilver.com and the website with the Omani Khanjar thesis break these down from each region as seen at references above.

The conical shapes have two names hat or shield of which I prefer to choose the latter; Terrs In the Khanjar dance a Shield or Terrs is used in the performance which is in the traditions or Funoon.
