    This knife has been in my possession since the mid 1960’s. It was purchased in an antique store in Manhattan, NY. I have no idea of it’s origin or age. It is in almost perfect condition except for age-cracks in handle.
    - Overall length is just under 17” - the handle and blade both are approximately 8 1/2” each.
    - the handle appears to be made of Ivory ( my guess)
    - the handle metal work is very fine (IMO)

    My guess is that it is from the Ottoman Turkish/ Middle East region (my guess only)

    I would like to know it’s approximate age, value, and place of origin

      Very nice example of a Turkish jambiya.
