    Late 19th-Early 20th Century French ‘Apache’ Pepperbox Knuckleduster French 6 mm Revolver
    ~ Late 19th-Early 20th Century French ‘Apache’ Pepperbox Knuckleduster ~ This is the rarest of all knuckledusters designs ever manufactured and our example is one of the first of its series (the centre fire revolver model), bearing the serial number '23'. Les Apaches was a Parisian Belle Époque violent criminal underworld subculture of early 20th century: hooligans, night muggers, street gangs. After the news about their notoriety spread over Europe, the term was used to describe violent street crime in other countries as well: "Russian apaches". Some of the gangs used a unique type of pistol which was named the "Apache revolver" or "Apache pistol": a pinfire/centerfire cartridge revolver with no barrel, a set of foldover brass knuckles for a handgrip, and a folding knife mounted right underneath the grip for use as a stabbing weapon. A number of these pieces were later used in the trenches of the First World War. The steel frame is stamped ‘J DELHAXE BREVETE 23’. The knuckleduster is fitted with a double action six shot revolver, a screwable rod, used to remove the empty bullet cases from the cylinder and a folding spike. The revolver’s calibre is 6mm. ~ Dimensions ~ The piece is 4 ½ inches (11.5 cm) wide and 3 inches (7.5 cm) deep. It weighs 280 grams. ~ Condition ~ The knuckleduster is in excellent condition. The double action revolver indexes and release with ease. The folding blade is excellent too with a fully functional catch and release push button. The weapon is rust and damage free. ~ Postage ~ Postage costs £15 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
