Silver Khanjar (dagger)

Khanjar form part of Omani male national dress and are still worn today, tied around the waist using a belt. The blade is not as curved as the scabbard. The khanjar is a sign of status; only the wealthy, including royalty, might wear one made of gold or silver. It also forms part of the Omani royal insignia and features on the Omani flag.
