A khanjar (Arabic: خنجر, Persian: خنجر, Turkish: Hançer) is a traditional dagger originating from Oman. Worn by men for ceremonial occasions, it is a short curved sword shaped like the letter „J” and resembles a hook. It can be made from a variety of different materials, depending on the quality of its craftsmanship. It is a popular souvenir among tourists and is sold in souqs throughout the region. A national symbol of the sultanate, the khanjar is featured on the country’s national emblem and on the Omani rial. It is also utilized in logos and commercial imagery by companies based in Oman.
Emblazoned on Oman’s white, red, and green flag is its national emblem, the Khanjar—a traditional dagger originating from the country used for ceremonial occasions. When found on a wristwatch they are rendered extremely rare, and are considered amongst the world’s most sought after collectible watches. So-called „Khanjar” watches were direct commissions from the Sultan of Oman, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said, who is well known for his enthusiasm for horology and his own formidable collection. His Majesty was born on November 18th of 1940, the only son to then Sultan Said bin Tamur and Princess Mazoon al-Mashani. He studied in India under the former President of India, Dayal Sharma, and at the age of 20, began his military training joining the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst in Camberley, Surrey, England.
