Rare Genoui, Moroccan Straight Dagger - 9298

The Genoui, is a rare variant of the classical Moroccan ‘Koumaya’ curved dagger with straight blade. The name literally means from Genoa, probably to indicate its ancient source. The straight 15 inches fullered blade is cut from an old sword and fitted with a massive Rhino horn handle. The scabbard is wood mounted with engraved brass mounts. Total length 21 inches. Very good condition. Very good age patina on the horn handle but the pommel brass mount is lost and replaced with a later 1945 Moroccan coin. Minor nicks on the brass mounts.
