From my latest catalogue: ICONIC 2017, a 19th century gilt Arabian Jambiya with wootz Damascus blade. Weighty and richly decorated, this Assib jambiya is made in the Meccan style and, importantly, it is almost identical to two daggers which were famously worn by that eminent figure of British history, Lawrence of Arabia (1). The I-shaped grip, typical of this weapon-type, is made of silver and has been generously gilded. It has two rosette-shaped buttons with pronounced central hemispheres, set against elegantly engraved foliate scrolls; with the rear showing a scaled pattern. The grip concludes with an attractive domed boss at each end of the pommel’s two tips.
The scabbard’s design is in keeping with the above and presents a series of beaded bands that border a complex, beautiful arrangement of openwork motifs. Eyelets on either side provide the means to attach the jambiya to a belt while a diagonal band bisects the scabbard’s front. Above this, a small inscription in Arabic reads: Work of ‘Abd Allah Rukhan (Ruhan?)
The scabbard’s mouth is covered in maroon velvet, ensuring a quiet and elegant drawing and sheathing of the dagger. (The same velvet is visible through some of the pierced work above the diagonal band.) The scabbard’s tip sweeps gracefully upwards until it terminates in a large, striated thum, or pommel.
The blade itself is forged from high quality wootz steel—a rare feature—and one that further indicates that this dagger was made for an important man with refined tastes. Alexander (2) describes a Meccan dagger in the Metropolitan Museum’s collection (31.35.1a-c) that is a very close relative to our example—it is likely that both were made in the same workshop.

A 19thC Jambiya, damascus watered steel hilt and blade. Hilt has gold koftgari and measures 3.5 inches. Blade measures 8.5 inches has five fullers and an armour piercing tip. It comes complete with scabbard.

For sale enquiries please message me directly, more pictures to follow.

It's quite ironic that we rarely share videos of the scabbards we make especially as we make lots of them every month. So here is a video for the humble sword scabbard!

It is constructed of a basswood core internally treated to prevent moisture or acidity attacking the blade. Covered in blackened vintage hide. The central join is finished with a copper braid which we nickel plated (Could have been Gold) and finally capped the point with a steel chape.

Last repost, I promise... the one I should never have let go of, pattern welded Damascus blade, widest khanda I have ever had the pleasure of owning. .

*SWIPE* After and before! Here are a couple of pictures of the helmet I have been working on now it is finished. See my previous posts for some of the processes used to conserve this lovely Indo-Persian helmet. Big thank you to the private owner for allowing me to share these images and to all the wonderful conservators who generously gave me their advice.

Weekend carving coral stones to revive an Ottoman sword, post restoration images to follow!

Yesterday, I said I had an exciting discovery to share with you and here it is! I told you that the helmet bowl is wootz, but that re-etching was out due to the fragility of the gold and clients wishes. Well, under all that corrosion there is a section of the original etched surface! It’s not perhaps quite as crisp as it might have been but I was so delighted to find it hidden under a layer of corrosion but still intact. Rust is funny stuff.

I think this is a real testament to the power of scalpel cleaning and what I love about conservation; I could have used a chemical corrosion remover or re-etched the bowl which should have been faster and given a more pristine finish, but I would never have uncovered this original surface which is truly part of the history and value of the object. -that’s not to say I am against re-etching, quite the contrary, but I am glad in this instance that I wasn’t able to, as it lead me to such a wonderful discovery.

Helmet update: after repairing the mail I had the corroded bowl to tackle... this provided me with a new problem as the gold overlay (koftgari/false damascening) was mostly being held on by corrosion products. I was pretty certain the bowl was wootz (from the large windows of steel in the gold decoration and the characteristic cracking and repairs) so the bowl would have originally been etched to show the pattern in the steel. As the gold was so fragile -flakes came off when the object was moved, I couldn’t risk using any chemical corrosion removers or rust converters. This also meant that re-etching was off the cards -though that wasn’t an issue as the client wanted the least invasive treatment possible.
I decided that the safest and most controllable way of removing the corrosion and keeping the gold was scalpel cleaning. Although it is a slow and painstaking process, if done correctly it is possible to scrape away corrosion to reveal the stable surface below, without scratching down to bare metal.
Here the some shots of the helmet half way through it’s scalpel cleaning. It is a wonderfully satisfying process to watch the surface emerge, my kind of meditation. I have an exciting discovery to share with you tomorrow!
