Agate Khanjar

Place of Origin: INDIA

Date: 18th–19th Century

Overall: 13.75" Inches

Reference: 254

Status: Sold

Full Description:

The Persian-type blade of this Indian khanjar dagger is double-edged and curves away sharply from the center-line, its thin medial ridge continuing all the way to the tip. The steel is wootz: evidence of this can be seen in the watery swirls that roam across the blade’s surface. The handle is oval in cross-section with a slightly waisted grip, and is of uncluttered form, made from an expertly worked brown agate—its subtle striations catching the light when held. The blade is painted with the inventory number ‘D75’.
