  1. Hello,
    I happened to find what I think is an antique Khanjar, that has been in my husbands family for a long time. It is made of all silver, very ornate, showing different drawings of people and animals on the sheath as well as the handle. It also has 3 stars and the word Syria on the blade.
    Does anyone know what it may be worth?
    Sincerely, Terri Nichols

  2. Hi Terri,

    You might want to contact Raj Relics and inquire/enquire about the price. (24490620/99329842) Email: enquiries@rajrelics.com http://www.rajrelics.com
    Another great place to ask is the Omani Heritage Gallery which is a non-profit organization in between O Sole Mio Italian restaurant and D’Arcy’s in Shatti al Qurum. (Tel: 24696974, http://www.omaniheritage.com)

    Sounds like an impressive Khanjar. I’d like to see that one! (Feel free to email me a pic…:-))
    I’d check out the prices for curiosities sake but that sounds like something you might want to hold on to!
