SOLD!....Vintage double bladed Sudanese Haladie dagger with Islamic Thuluth caligraphy script blades. This dagger appears to depart from the traditional Haladie style of asymmetric offset blades. I took the trouble to x-ray this piece and found that it is two forgings that do not join in the middle, please see photos. So there is a potential that a previous repair has occurred and one blade was reversed. The pious Thuluth script is in wonderful condition and a pleasure to view. has both leather sheaths. Condition; One blade has looseness to it, decorated horn handle has one age crack and a small part of the stitching of the leather sheath is separating. Excellent example of Islamic influenced West African forging and great for display.
