Janbiya

Janbiya, also spelled janbia, jambiya, and jambia, (Arabic: جنبية‎ ), is the Arabic term for dagger, but it is generally used to describe a specific type of dagger with a short curved blade that is worn on a belt. Although the term jambiya is also used in other Arab countries, it is mostly associated with people of Yemen.
