Gold-decorated Pesh Kabz Dagger
- Dated: circa 1820
- Measurements: overall length 42cm, blade 27cm
A very fine and beautiful Indian pesh kabz dagger that features exceptionally fine gold decoration to the steel hilt and sheatht. The blade with watered pattern visible and makers stamps to each side.
The bolsters showing gold applied koftgari birds. Unusually the sheath to this dagger is also steel, the tip flared at the back edge to mirror the shape of the blade tip which has a yelmen and sharpened back edge. It is likely the hilt and sheath is also made from watered steel.

My first project for advanced metalsmithing this semester. It’s a multipurpose “letter opener.” It could also be a can opener…or a man opener.
I don’t have issues, I just like pointy things.
