Khanjar Dagger

  • Dated: 18th century
  • Culture: Indian (Mughal)
  • Measurements: overall length 40.5 cm

 The dagger has a straight, double-edged, Damascus steel blade, grooved at the centre and slightly strengthened at the tip. It features a beautiful, dark green jade grip with an angled pommel, chiselled with floral motifs at the edge and enriched with rubies framed with yellow gold.

The silver-plated wooden scabbard is engraved and decorated at the upper parts with a bas-relieved garland and a band featuring an inscription in Arabic. There’s also a shell-shaped tip, a decorated suspension ring and remains of gilding.

For similar, jade grips decorated with hard stones and gold, see “Islamic and Oriental Arms and Armour” by Robert Hales, pages 18-27. Also, this is interesting and rare blade, almost straight, has an unusual length considering the type of dagger.

iguanamouth:

recently i was approached by boom studios with an offer to do an ADVENTURE TIME COMIC COVER, and i jumped on the chance to be a part of a series that ive always enjoyed a whole dang lot

after submitting three potential designs we went with my personal favorite, the one with a big ol nod to m.c. escher. even if it doesnt get chosen as an official cover i still had a lot of fun with the design ! and id imagine if escher was still around to see it hed say something like “how did i get here” and “whats going on”. haha classic escher

LOOK AT HOW WELL THIS IS SOURCED

That aside I need to double check this because I can almost guarentee this is a statistic that has been taken out of context and spun, I WILL REPORT BACK WITH THE NEWS

Also twice the non reciprocal means that women fight back to their abusers and men don’t

It doesn’t mean that women are committing twice the amount of harm
