ARMENIAN KINDJAL QAMA, CA.1850
Available in the following categories:
NO LONGER AVAILABLE


This substantial Qama dates to the mid-1800s and was made by an Armenian blade-smith. Maker's mark consists of a cartouche with Armenian letters M and A, along with an old Armenian letter or symbol which I haven't been successful in deciphering.
Giant, 60.5 cm long, 5 cm wide blade has three fullers on each side, with two lateral fullers decorated with the flowing vine motifs; the median fuller is etched with the continuous serpentine pattern. The hilt is simple, with two protruding rivet heads, in the Georgian style. An outstanding, scarcely-seen qama!
