THESE OLD EUROPEAN (and other) BUTTER KNIVES and the larger knives often for cutting cakes or bread/ meat and sought after by Omanis for their excellent blades and razor sharpened for menial tasks like cutting string or the traditional coup de grace for killing small game chickens and the like … are worn tucked in behind the Khanjar often in a hand made leather scabbard or in the case of the bigger knives on their own on a belt. The clipped point is often preferred and the silver work traditional, always on the hilt and over the top of existing bone, bakelite or other handles.
Here are full pictures of the knives..(Sikkeen) below.
