A Jambiya is a traditional Arabic knife with a curved blade. Our unique design draws on a range of artistic influences from Arabic culture.
Our Gilded, Silver mounted Jambiya with a polished finish was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis at a meeting at the Vatican in 2016 by Bhai Sahib, Bhai Mohinder Singh Ahluwalia KSG, OBE, of Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha, Birmingham, UK.
