    ~ Circa 1900 Fernando Esser Spanish Fighting Knife ~


    Here we have a fascinating piece, a blade called a ‘Spanish Fighting Knife’, a very similar type of blade to a clipped point bowie knife that was very popular in the early 20th and late 19th centuries.

    The story behind the Spanish fighting knife is that they were a way of settling disputes and that there was always a pair of these kept behind the bar in every tavern, inn or pub for the patrons to use if needed. Whether this is accurate or not it captured the minds of some blade makers and these were made in a few limited runs.

    This blade is by the German blademaker Fernando Esser and is numbered sa the 450th of this run, the highest serial number I have found is 841.

    The blade is stamped with the Fernando Esser rearing horse logo, its factory marks ‘FERNANDO ESSER, ELBERFELD, ACERO FUNDIDO ,RANTIZADO’, the ‘ACERO FUNDIDO’ is exceptionally interesting as it is the mark of crucible steel.

    The blade also bears faint acid etchings on the blade also with the company logo and name.

    The blade comes with its original leather sheath.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 16 inches (40.5 cm) long.

    The knife is 21.5 inches (54.5 cm) long.

    The knife weighs 655g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in good condition for its age, its etchings and engravings are faded but still visible.

    The blade has some patination but is of good quality and has been looked after, even retaining some of its edge.
    The grip has lost some of its leather wrap.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be inspected in our shop.
