Default Omani Khanjar ?

Arrived today, 07.07.22, bought via E-bay for a bargain price. E-bat restricts what can be sold in the UK, but the vendor called it a Jambiya, never used the word "blade" and in the pics kept it in the scabbard! He beat the algorithm!
I was glad to see it did have a blade, albeit one of the two part hollow ones.
The "silver" is very thin, and the blade fits the scabbard poorly, to the point where I think that they did not start life together. I am still happy with the piece, it's a handsome display piece and cost about the same as a sit down meal for two in a pizzeria.
