BONE HANDLED SMALL DIRK

$325.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2021-765

This bone-handled dirk has elegant proportions, measuring about 8.5 inches overall and mounting a 5-inch blade, and would be easily concealed in a vest or under one’s coat. the blade is double edged with median ridge, with good edge and point. The blade shows dark pitting near the guard but is smoother lower down and gray in tone with dark gray spots. The ferrule at the bottom of the grip is missing and was likely a thin embossed silver band. The recurved guard is silver or white metal, flat, with disk finials. The grip is solid, yellowish cream in color, with some dark hairlines. The leather scabbard has age and was a functional replacement, the original likely being leather covered pasteboard and silver, or german silver mounted. These are tough to date, but 1820 to 1830 would not be far from the mark. This one has seen use, but would display well as traveler’s or even card-player’s companion.  [sr] [ph:m]
