The daggers exquisitely created by Abu Rashid are in a class of their own, standing out for their unmatched precision, the superiority of their materials, and the alluring designs that adorn each one. Referred to as Al-Muhaisini daggers, they are boldly branded with the family name and are the pinnacle of exquisite craftsmanship.
