Very Good Moroccan Koumaya Dagger with Horn Handle
Date: First half of the 20 C.
This Koumaya Dagger is coming from Marrakesh, Morocco. Very good exemplar of massive handle and scabbard. Classical double edged blade, at its lower half and single edged at the top. The blade is of good thickness, nicely fullered and decoratively pierced at its top. The handle is carved from a massive piece of R horn widening toward the pommel and mounted with silver pommel cover known as “Hanzer ” type (See E. Claude below). Whole chased silver scabbard.
Blade 9 inches (23 cm). Total length 15 inches (38 cm). Very good condition.
