A really nice example of a Sudanese arm dagger. These knives were carried by followers of Mahdi who defeated the British in 1880. The sheath is made from cow hide and snake or crocodile skin and the handle is covered in the same. The steel blade is in great condition and has been well crafted. The loop is designed to allow the knife to be worn on the lower arm.
29cm long. Supplied with acrylic stand.
