Middle east & caucasus
Large Ottoman Khanjar Dagger from the Balkan Region
Origin: Balkan, may be Albania
Date: 19 C.
Ottoman Khanjar daggers are found all over the region but especially in the Balkan on the western borders of the empire and further east to the borders with Persia. All have some similarities but differs in size, shape, materials and decorations.
The Khanjar offered here is of larger dimensions than usual. 20 inches long. Curved and double edged blade with a central rib,. Large size silver handle and a whole silver scabbard densely and impressively chased all over.
Blade 13 1/2 inches (34 cm). Total length 20 inches (51 cm). Very good condition. Minor pitted spots on the blade tip.
The large “I” shaped handle with extensions on the pommel and the cross guard tips are sometimes identified as of Albanian origin. May be. But definitely from the Balkan region of the Ottoman empire. An impressive authentic 19 C. artifact.
