Thanks so much for posting this useful information. The adaptation of high quality European steel to practical working knives is yet one more example of local reuse of materials for a new purpose. Functional work knives are not always so pretty as these, and have been a particular favorite of mine for a long time. Mostly I collect SE Asian and southern Asian examples, but these Omani knives are much prettier than a utilitarian bolo, parang, pisau, hansia, dha, etc.

Excellent thread!

Ian.
