Antique Omani Baluchi silver Khanjar

Omani Baluchi silver Khanjar
  • Description

 

Very Rare antique Omani Baluchi  silver Khanjar.  However piece of silver missing on the back.  Genuine antique blade. Seller demonstrated the strength of the blade by cutting (to my horror) through a brass gun-cartridge!

Elgood (Ref 1) describes it as Persian Silver Khanjar, but the designs are Omani / Baluchi. Our website has several pieces of silver jewellery from Oman with identical decoration.  Beautiful and very rare in this quality.
