GOLDEN ARABIC JAMBIYA DAGGER. 22K SOLID GOLD SHEATHING.

Early to Mid 20th Century ARABIAN JAMBIYA DAGGER for ARAB of the Highest Social Status. 22K Solid Gold Sheathing with extensive FILIGREE and Fret - Cut work. Polished Blade with Single Solid Rib. Worn during formal occasions. I estimate t must be at least 2 OUNCES Pure GOLD on this dagger (scrap melt value around $1,300.00 with Gold at $650.00 per ounce). Top hilt to curve measures 10". Overall to include curve is 13-1/2". Nearly 10" knife from top of hilt to blade tip. 6-1/4" blade. 1-1/2" width at top of blade. Back of sheath is leather. It does show some wear. See all pictures. THIS JAMBIYA WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE the HIGHLIGHT of your COLLECTION!!! Very reasonable reserve has been set (WAY under the scrap melt value of the gold alone).
