A nice Moroccan Koumaya.

This knife measures 41cms overall in the sheath, 40cms out with a 25cm blade.
From the first half of the 20th century, this Koumaya remains in very good condition, although there appears to be a period repair to the decorative side of the hilt where the blade meets.
The knife is a brass construction over timber that has been decoratively embellished with fine chased silver work.
The blade is of typical form with a block forte, a short outer edge and a longer inner edge.

A nice example displaying fine aspects of native Moroccan craftsmanship.
