The omani Khanjar is a very interesting dagger. To keep this thread alive I show a very old example. It is silver mounted, the hilt is made of Rhino horn and with a ring of solid gold. I think it is a very charismatic piece.

Made some spontaneous pictures of another Khanjar from my collection:


Scabbard and hilt should be antique but maybe the blade was replaced later.
I also added a macro shot of the rhino handle.

As I bought it, a little piece of parchment was with it.
Maybe anyone can help me with the translation?

Regards

Gonzo,

The author of this thread has not been seen on these pages for a couple of years. I'm afraid you may not get very much response from the rest of us because Ibrahiim was the authority on these knives.

Ian.

No problem, but maybe I get some help with the inscription on the parchment, would be better than nothing.
