Seller: islamiqueantiques_dot_com (1,077) 100%, Location: New York, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 282275027009 AWESOME large dagger with GOLD and SILVER inlay on Damascus Steel with Scabbard! Ottoman or Indo-Persian c1800 or earlier You are bidding on the very rare and beautiful LARGE dagger as shown in the images above. This is an exquisite work of art and has so much amazing detail on it! It is difficult to capture the deep rich colour and intricate detail on this dagger! Please note that the last image shows the actual deep green colour of the handle. The handle is made from a wonderful spinach green horn that has been elegantly shaped to make it easy to grip. There is even a deeply engraved band around the centre of the handle to make sure that your fingers do not slip when you unsheath this weapon! The band would also provide a solid grip when you are in the middle of a fight! There is a wonderfully engraved and SILVER inlaid section where the hoops are attached to the section that would have the belt looped through. Just look at that ornate silver inlay! The next section is made of a beautiful piece of textile and looks very much like a Persian or Turkish rug in colour and design. This section would allow the owner to grab the sheath without fear of it slipping when pulling out the dagger in the middle of a fight! The bottom section of the sheath/scabbard is also intricately inlaid with silver. Just look at that wonderful finishing touch at the tip of the scabbard! When you unsheath the blade you realise what a serious weapon it is! It is very sharp, has a wonderful curve and it is very long! The top section is beautifully inlaid with GOLD! The dagger fits tightly into the scabbard just as it should. You can see that the steel blade has some deep patination and that it is skilfully made. This is known as wootz steel or Damascus steel and was known for it’s strength. Remember that sometimes the fighter would be stabbing at someone wearing chain armour, carrying a shield or that the dagger would be hitting another dagger. Hence the need for a strong, solid blade! This awesome dagger measures 400mm tip to top in the scabbard and the blade is 220mm in length. This is an absolutely exquisite work of art and a piece of history! It is in excellent condition with some very minor wear that is commensurate with age. Please note that there is a small section on the back of the handle where the horn has a natural blemish: it has become dry and there is a split. This is a minor issue as this is a very rare and highly desirable piece in overall excellent condition. Also, please note that the blemish is at the back/rear of the handle so it is really not noticeable when this piece is on display.
