Once in a while, we get super exciting knives brought to us by our customers for consignment sales or trade-ins.
This time we offer a unique and extraordinary historical antique Dagger (Kindjal) from Georgia and a belt set! Both were made by the same master and always were together for the last 100+ years.
This dagger is signed, which is very rare for this type of dagger! The signature on the belt accessory is the original owner's name: Stepan Abramidze. We did some research and found only two Stepans from that period of time from the royal family of Abramidze - one was the Police Chief in Vladikavkaz, and the second one (cousin) was "abrek" - which means a loan warrior fighting for just cause. Of course, now we are not sure which one had this dagger...
This kindjal has a traditional Georgian Silver blacking decoration on all silver parts; very unique.
We took a lot of pictures of this set. Please take a look at all pictures and let us know if you have any questions about the specific part of the dagger or the belt
This unique masterpiece will be a great addition to any serious collection!
We do accept and are interested in reasonable offers!
