Hunter's comment

Bichaq Dagger with Inscribed Niello Silver Mounts set with 17th century Gold Acehnese Gold Dirham
probably Bukhara, Central Asia

dated 1310 AH (1892 AD)

length: 30.5cm, weight: 193g

This fine bichaq dagger or knife has a curved blade of wootz steel that is riveted at the basal mount. The hilt is inset with bone plaques and encased in niello silver with a beaked pommel that is surmounted by a silver ring through which a tassel could be threaded. The silver is decorated with running arabesques and scrolling foliage in niello. The inner side of the grip is dated and inscribed in nasta’liq script (again, in niello) with the owner’s name ‘Muhammed al-Nur’.
