DESCRIPTION

Daggers of this type, called pesh-kabz in Persian, have a straight or curved single-edged blade of T-shaped cross-section that tapers to an acute point. They were used in Iran and northern India in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This Indian example is distinctive for its jeweled nephrite jade hilt and delicately pierced scabbard mounts.
