Why the janbiya remains a symbol of national pride and identity in the Arabian Peninsula | RHINO BIOLOGY & CONSERVATION | Scoop.it

It is traditionally worn by men, attached to a belt around the waist, as the main accessory to their traditional clothing. Intricate carvings on the dagger’s hilt and sheath can provide clues to the owner’s social status and tribal background, revealing details of ancestral roots and information passed from one generation to the next that offer a fascinating insight into an era that has largely passed.
