Large Exceptional Ottoman Style Arab Khanjar Dagger

15281 Category:

Origin: Turkey / Arabia

Date: 19C.


Ottoman Khanjar daggers are found all over the region. From the Balkan on the western borders, further east to the borders with Persia and south to the Arab peninsula.  All have some similarities  but differs in size, shape, materials and decorations.

The Khanjar offered here is a large version. Huge 24 inches long. Curved and double edged blade forged from Sham watered steel. Large size silver handle with triangular pommel and a beautifully chased whole silver scabbard with a “Thum” tip.

Blade 17 inches. Total length 24 inches. Very good condition.

As for the exact origin of this khanjar, although the silver chased style and technique are Turkish, the long blade without a central rib and the triangular shaped pommel suggest a strong Arab origin and remind the Sabiki / Daharia long daggers from Arabia. May be a special order made in Turkey for a wealthy Arab from the peninsula.

An impressive authentic 19 C. exemplar.
