The Omani Khanjar known as “Saidi” or “Royal” style is the most sought after of all Omani Khanjars and certainly deserves the respect. The tale is that the Persian wife of Sayyid Said bin Sultan was bored with the classical shape of the Omani Khanjar and designed this attractive style as a present to her husband. Hence the “Royal” title. The general “L” shaped scabbard and the twisted wires belt attachment is kept Omani, however the handle and grip, usually silver or rhino horn, are highly decorated with filigree silver panels and inserts.

The exemplar exhibited here has  a classical curved and dual edge blade with a central rib. The hilt is R horn set with the classical Saidi silver filigree panels. The 7 rings scabbard is bound with golden color threads and mounted with filigree silver locket and chape. This khanjar comes with its original fabric belt with heavy double links silver buckle.

Blade 7 inches (18 cm) long. Total length 12 1/2 inches (32 cm). Very good condition. Blackened small areas on the blade. Original scabbard cover front and back. Original golden colored scabbard threads. Minor losses to the belt. Authentic and rare Khanjar.
