Moroccan or Berber dagger or something else ?
kindly requested to advise :
is this knife / dagger Moroccan ?
or Berber (Imazighen/Amazighen ) ?
or even from somewhere else ?
total lenght: 28 cm
scabbard 16 cm
dagger 27 cm
blade 15, 5cm
handle ( horn) 12 cm
Looking very much forward to your feedback, thank you very much !
Have a look at the link below:
thnx a lot !
As mine is 12 cm shorter than the average ones which are 40 cm, would that imply, mean something or not at all ?
On the basis of form, construction and some of the decorative elements, I believe this is Moroccan, later 20th Century, probably made to appeal to the traveler. Considering the amount of hand work put in to these, I was surprised at how inexpensive they were during my own travel to Morocco in 1998.
thank you very much as well!
Also in 1980 they were very inexpensive:not only the ones shown in the link but also the filigree ones
