Khanjar Dagger

  • Dated: 18th century
  • Culture: Indian (Mughal)
  • Measurements: overall length 40.5 cm

 The dagger has a straight, double-edged, Damascus steel blade, grooved at the centre and slightly strengthened at the tip. It features a beautiful, dark green jade grip with an angled pommel, chiselled with floral motifs at the edge and enriched with rubies framed with yellow gold.

The silver-plated wooden scabbard is engraved and decorated at the upper parts with a bas-relieved garland and a band featuring an inscription in Arabic. There’s also a shell-shaped tip, a decorated suspension ring and remains of gilding.

For similar, jade grips decorated with hard stones and gold, see “Islamic and Oriental Arms and Armour” by Robert Hales, pages 18-27. Also, this is interesting and rare blade, almost straight, has an unusual length considering the type of dagger.

My friend’s puppy, Midna, ran out of their house and got picked up by someone and put her in their car.

If there’s anyone in the Pinellas County area in Florida who happens to run into her, please let me know.

She’s a black and white husky with red tones in the whites of her fur. She’s micro-chipped under her previous name “Kenzie.”

Please help
