Moroccan Berber Dagger and Sheath, Vintage Moroccan Daggers, Engraved Berber Koumya, Islamic Jambiya

Vintage Handmade Engraved Moroccan Daggers
The Moroccan Dagger known locally as Koumaya is the traditional dagger of Moroccan men especially Berber living in Atlas mountains and Bedouins in the desert. Nowadays few people still wear it, especially old men who live in villages, as a mark of social position, elegance, and belonging to a group rather than a defense weapon. Young men wear it on special occasions like weddings to show their pride in their origins, and culture and to keep this precious heritage alive and spread it to the next generations.
The ‘Koummya‘ dagger is a traditional curved dagger worn by the Berber and Arabic people from Morocco. The ‘Koummya‘ is worn on the waist with a cord attached to the shoulder. They vary in quality but are mostly decorated with silver or brass, and the hilts are often made of rhinoceros horn or wood. Many of them are made in the region of Marakesh and show typical floral chiseled or engraved motifs on the silverwork.

One of the forms seen on traditional ‘Koummya‘ daggers. The blade is well forged and balanced and features a fullered forte and curved tip with a double edge. The blade is signed by the blade-smith on the forte with an unknown mark. The scabbard is entirely decorated with chiseled motifs and has two suspension rings attached near the scabbard mouth. The scabbard is hallmarked on the tip, on both suspension rings, and near the scabbard throat. The hilt is made of fine patinated wood with an aesthetically pleasing grain.
