This is a very graceful and beautiful Yemeni dagger. It measures 12" long and weighs 3/4 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 studs, ending with a silver dangle. This was made approximately 1880-1920 for ceremonial dress use, so the blade is unsharpened and chromed.
