Ottoman (?) Curved Dagger (With North African Fragrance) - 14128
We are not very sure as for the origin of this dagger. Many similar ones are common on the market as bazaar pieces but this one is old (late 19-early20C.) of very good quality and workmanship. The thick curved blade is 9 1/2 inches long, single edge with a 5 inches back edge. Horn grip (Rhino ?) with brass circle inserts, set with small red stones. Total length 14 1/2 inches. very good condition. Few brass inserts are missing. The handle with the brass inserts is of ottoman style where as the blade shape looks North African. Interesting mix. Well made dagger.
