Antique Moroccan Jambiya Islamic dagger Koummya 19th c
Antique 19th century silver mounted Moroccan Islamic dagger Jambiya Koummaya. A superb quality curved tapering double – edged steel blade cut with fullers, with a wooden grip of characteristic waisted form, with a silver ferrule, and a peacock's tail pommel, engraved in foliate in its solid silver scabbard, chiseled with expanded flower heads and scrolling foliage.
This dagger is better quality than average Moroccan koummyas, with an extremely fine quality steel blade hardly ever seen in this type of Jambiya.
REFERENCES: (1) A similar Moroccan Jambiya is published in the book, “Islam : les armes blanches de l'Atlantique ŕ l'Indus” by Alain Jacob on Page: 9 .
The buyer will be provided with a copy of the page from the mentioned reference together with a certificate of authenticity.
CONDITION: In good condition considering its age with traces of slight rust on the blade, and minor dents on the scabbard.
MEASUREMENTS: Overall length in the scabbard: 40.5 cm (16 in).
