PRICE REDUCED £45 ! ### NEW LISTING ### 9/9/15. SUPERB BRITISH GEORGIAN NAVAL OR ARMY OFFICERS DOUBLE FULLERED STILLETTO BLADE DIRK IN ORIGINAL LEATHER SHEATH.
Overall very nice original condition.
Obviously of some age and by the overall quality and style of the dirk and leather sheath would say probably British or certainly W European manufacture. There are various pictures of similar Georgian Naval Dirks on the internet.
Lovely quality double fullered stilletto blade with finely watered or decorated steel inside the fullers.
The 6 1/4 inch ( about 15.8 cm) blade has fine file marks along the edge where it has been sharpened and is still sharp.Blade about 4 mm thick
,Overall length of dagger about 28.8 cm. Through tang with brass dome spiral pommell and short brass guard with thumb rest cut out on one side.
Complete with its original finely decorated very nice quality hide leather back stitched belt sheath.A mark of history is the indents to the leather sheath caused by the guard resting against the leather over a long period. Another interesting mark of history is that the separate leather belt loop stitched to the back of the sheath ( again a reflection of the quality of manufacture) to accomodate up to a 3 inch (about 7.5 cm) wide belt has had a contemporary stitch put in the belt loop to reduce the size to fit about a 1 inch ( about 2.5 cm ) belt.
If anyone has further info please email.Thanks.
A superb dagger and especially considering its age and usage in overall very nice original condition.
