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.
