    Gonzalo,

    Actually this thread is only meant for Arab jambiyas. NOte that in Persian the word jambiya does not mean anything. The word khanjar is used for curved double-edged weapons. So calling a Persian/Iranian dagger a jambiya is a misnomer.

    Kind regards

    Oh, please excuse us, Manouchehr, we did not meant to post off-topic, we were just thinking in the relation of the jambiya with their equivalents in the islamic world, their morphology and history. And besides, nobody called a persian wepon "jambiya" in this posts.

    No problem at all. I just wanted to point that out so that we stick to Arab jambiyas/khanjars here. Thanks no problem

    Kind regards
