Mogul Khanjar with Jade Hilt - 5704

Indian ‘Khanjar’ with the Mogul style jade handle. Beautiful 9 ½ inches wootz blade, curved double edge and with a central rib. Light green jade handle carved with floral design. The blade is 18C but the handle is later, probably late 19 C. Excellent condition. No pitting or staining on the blade and a good etching will reveal its full beauty. Few minor superficial scratches on the grip. Good piece, sought after by many collectors.
