This is a very graceful and beautiful Yemeni dagger. It measures 13" long and weighs nearly a pound. The handle has two pounded coins affixed, and the surface has a nubbly texture to it . I believe it may be either Giraffe or Rhino horn. The leather sheath is embellished with hand worked silver set with a carnelian. The tip has a slight separation. This was made approximately 1880-1920 for ceremonial dress use, so the blade is unsharpened and chromed, a few spots of chrome have flaked off, revealing the steel beneath.
This This knife features a graceful curving line, with intricate etchings, and jeweled accents. Measuring 17" (43cm) long and weighing 1 1/4 pounds (.57kg), the handle and sheath are faced with with etched white metal and the back is in brass. The blade appears to be carbon steel, and isn't particularly sharp. There are a pair of rings for attaching it to a belt. I suspect this may be a Moroccan ceremonial or display piece from the 1950's.
