WW2 Theatre Knife

$292.50
Genuine WW2 Theatre knife, possibly British with a bowie type blade and tang wrapped with a cord and glued with a kind of resin.  Theatre knives are a type of trench art fighting knives made for battle from parts of artillery shrapnel, downed plane parts, exploded armored vehicles and what ever metal and steel can be found around the battle field. This theatre knife is probably from World War 2, most likely British due to the motto on the blade "Your Courage Will Bring Us Victory".  The tip of the pommel has a crown and the initials GP. The scabbard is made of canvas and looks like it was used in Israel due to the Hebrew name written behind it which is barely readable רון כרמי (Ron Carmi).

Tibetan Kila Phurba Dagger

Tibetan Kila Phurba Dagger

$228.15
The Kila Phurba dagger is a three-sided knife, or nail-like ritual item traditionally associated with Indo-Tibetan Buddhism in which the knife is used to symbolically penetrate and break the earth.  Like many of the traditional Tibetan metal instruments, the kila is often made from brass and iron (sometimes of meteoric iron) and often features three faces of Vajrakīla, a deity manifestation of heroic power.  The three faces are often featured as one joyful, one peaceful, one wrathful (not in this case) and the blade is usually composed of three triangular facets or faces, meeting at the tip.  These represent, respectively, the blade's power to transform the negative energies known as the "three poisons" or "root poisons" of attachment/craving/desire, delusion/ignorance/misconception. This Tibetan Kila Phurba dagger we have for sale in in very good condition and is probably from the mid 20th century. Length: 28 cm (11 inches)

Omani Al Saidi Royal Khanjar

$491.40
A fine example of the famous Omani Al Saidi or Royal style Khanjar.  This is a traditional Omani khanjar dagger with a dual edged blade and distinct central rib, fine silver filigree throughout the handle and scabbard and floral bands.  The hilt is probably made of horn and wrapped with the classical Saidi silver filigree panels.  The legend of the Royal style is that the Persian wife of Sayyid Said bin Sultan (1791-1856), the last ruler of the united Omani Empire, was bored with the classical shape of the Omani Khanjar and designed this J shaped style as a present for her husband, hence the “Royal” title of this Omani khanjar.  The back of the scabbard is a brownish velvet.  This Omani Al Saidi khanjar is made probably during the mid 20th century. Dimensions: With scabbard: 31 cm (12.20 inches) Without scabbard: 27 cm (10.60 inches)
