425$ Exl. VAT
Date: Early 20 C.
The so called Joulba Jambiya daggers are coming from the Tihama region in Western Yemen, on the shores of the red sea. The influence of the long daggers from Asir and Gizan to the North, Partially in Saudi Arabia, is clearly seen in the similar and less curved Joulba Jambiya daggers.
The Joulba dagger offered here is early 20 C. with classical very good double edged blade with pronounced central rib. Horn handle set with steel nails(Few replaced) and two brass imitation coins. Very fine heavy whole silver scabbard with good filigree work. Original back cover leather.
Blade 8 1/2 inches (22 cm). Total length `7 inches (43 cm). Very good condition. Minor blackened spots on the blade.
The dagger is a bit shorter than the scabbard. Although both the dagger and the scabbard are old, it may indicate a later replacement as common in Yemenite jambiya daggers.
