**VERY LARGE**19th Century Corsican Type Folding Vendetta Type Assassin's Knife By E Garnero Menton With Decorated Bone Scales. Sn 18464 - 18464

These types of dagger were were favoured by Corsican assassins and families involved in Vendettas that often led to bloodshed. This example has the form and characteristics of those made in the 19th Century but is very large. The steel single edged steel blade in typical Corsican form is 10” in length and has staining and patina consistent with use and age. The cutting edge is very sharp and has just a few nicks to the cutting edge. The knife measures 21” overall length when open. The blade has no visible vendetta motto etching often found on these knives. One side is faintly signed with what appears to be ‘E.Garnero Menton’ (most likely a maker or retailer). It has undamaged bone scales with hand painted decoration. The scales are secured by rivets. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18464...Read full description
