Default Kurdish Jambiya

My first Kurdish dagger, which I am very pleased with. I think it has an exceptionally good blade. I purchased it from Gavin at SwordsAntiqueWeapons and am happy to recommend him to others. Very easy to do business with.

Hi Harry,

Hi MIguel,
The blade is 9.5" and the knife's overall size is 15.3".

Cheers!

Hi Harry,

Very nice Kurdish dagger! I love Kurdish daggers.
By the way, I wonder why collectors talk about Kurdish daggers as a whole.
I can see some differences between the so-called Kurdish daggers from Turkey, Syria, Irak and Iran... Plus even in Irak, the so-called Kurdish daggers from Bagdad are very different. There are also some so-called Kurdish daggers that I suspect to be produced in the Balkans...
Some members share these thoughts with me or am I completely crazy??

Hi Kubur,
They seem very similar to me also. I would not be surprised to learn that their design was influenced by whichever came first. I would lump the "Basra dagger" in with that group also.

Cheers!

Hi Harry,
Thanks for the info, that's a nice size. I have a much smaller version but identical in other respects, mine is 9.5ins overall with a 5.3 ins long blade.
Thanks
Miguel
