This is a very graceful and beautiful Yemeni dagger. It measures 11" long and weighs a little over a pound. The front of the sheath is elaboratly embellished with hand worked silver filigrees designs over solid silver, it is backed in leather. There is an additional smaller knife with it's own subsheath, as shown. This was made approximately 1920 to 1950 for ceremonial dress use, so the blade is unsharpened and chromed.
