A friend of mine needs a little bit of help
((I’m posting this here, because I have more followers on this blog than I do any of my others.
One of my best friends since middle school is taking a trip in a week or so to come visit Seattle with her mother. Unfortunately she has to take a number of days off from work to do so, and her job pays her by the hour. Meaning, she’s going to be taking a bit of a blow to her paycheck which also puts her in a bit of danger of not being able to pay her rent and utilities.
If anyone would be willing to help at all, that would be great. Just spreading the word around would be pretty super, too. I’m really excited to be able to see her again, but I’d hate for her to end up in financial trouble because of it. ))

Slightly curved, the single-edged blade is decorated on both sides with a silver-inlaid cartouche depicting floral motifs. One side is complete with inscriptions in Arabic. The white metallic grip and ring-nut present remains of gilding, with filigree and floral decorations.
