Khanjar is a generic word for a type of knife or sword used in Oman and other Middle Eastern countries. Originating in the Arab world, it eventually spread to southern Asia and parts of eastern Europe. It has a double-edged and double curved blade, and in India often has a reinforced point to give strength to enable the blade to be used against mail armour. In Oman the dagger usually referred to in other cultures as a "jambiya" is commonly called "khanjar".
