A rare and collectable example of the 'Tiger Tooth’ Khanjar.
The grip slabs are of elephant Ivory and feature the iconic three lobed pommel which is a distinguishing characteristic of the dagger type. The pommel is embellished with a fine solid silver lanyard toggle device.
The double-edged blade is of fine dark Wootz steel construction displaying an active and vibrant watered pattern. Unusual for the type the forte remains untouched and without floral motifs generally seen on other examples. The blade edges remain in original mirror polish with the blade terminating in a classic diamond section tip.
