Sales enquiries

Good example of a Trafalgar period British midshipman's or officer's fighting dirk. Unlike a short dress dirk, this is more a very short sword worn in case of close hand-to-hand combat on a cramped ship's deck. The 41.5 cm blade has a single fuller, patina and is firm in the ivory grip hilt. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number 300.
