    RARE, ORIGINAL, Victorian Era Bone Handled Corsican Vendetta Assassin's Dagger With Etched Blade 'Vendetta Corsa' (Continuing Revenge), 'Che La Mia Ferita Sia Mortale' (May Your Wounds Be Mortal) & Sheath. Sn 12517:1 - 12517:1

    These daggers were made by Corsican blade makers during the Victorian era and were favoured by assassins and families involved in Vendettas that often led to bloodshed. It was typical of these knives that they would be etched with motto's to remind the assailant and the victim of the reason for the assault with the blade. This is a beautiful original example of a Victorian Corsican revenge dagger. The steel single edged steel blade in typical Corsican form is 5 ¼” in length and has only light staining consistent with age. The dagger measures 9 ½” overall length. The blade is etched on both sides with Corsican Mottos within foliate decoration. One side has 'Vendetta Corsa' (Continuing Revenge) together with typical Corsican side portrait of a Corisican villager’s head and the reverse 'Che La Mia Ferita Sia Mortale' (May Your Wounds Be Mortal). It has lovely bone scales secured by brass rivets and a short brass finger guard. The scales are decorated with naïve hand applied foliate decoration. The dagger is complete with its later black leather scabbard with riveted seams and integral belt loop with leather cord and wood toggle. Price for this Corsican Vendetta Dagger which are hard to find includes UK delivery. Sn 12517:1
