Persian Kard Knife / Dagger

SOLD!

This is a very nice example Large Persian Kard Knife from the late 18th, early 19th Century. Blade measures 8 3/4”, forged from wootz (Damascus) steel, and decorated with rich gold koftgari inlay. The knife measures 14” from handle to blade tip, and 15 1/4” within the sheath. The two huge grip plates appear to be genuine elephant ivory based on that vein pattern…

This is not technically a WW2 item, but came in a lot with several WW2 era daggers and swords so I thought I’d post it anyway.

This is a very nice example Large Persian Kard Knife from the late 18th, early 19th Century. Blade measures 8 3/4”, forged from wootz (Damascus) steel, and decorated with rich gold koftgari inlay.

The knife measures 14” from handle to blade tip, and 15 1/4” within the sheath. The two large Walrus Ivory grip plates show no signs of damage or cracks. The original black leather sheath has aged extremely well, and the stitching has held up remarkably well, with only a couple of very minor spots where the seam has loosened, including at the edge where the grip seats.

This is a fantastic knife, very difficult to come by these days in any condition. The photos tell the story better than words.
