Description

Dagger carried by the Anṣār (الأنصار), with double-edged curved blade in black leather scabbard with a one-piece waisted wooden handguard and grip. The blade has a rusting medial rib. There are no decorative markings anywhere on the item, but the hand grip seems to have been carved in some form of decorative way, possibly with an Arabic inscription on the hilt. [FN/ON/FHM 2019]
