Georgian / Napoleonic Royal Naval Officer's
Fighting Dirk, Sold
In good overall condition, a Napoleonic British RN fighting dirk.
A "fighting" dirk because of the longer blade length
(for a dirk), the blade construction (for strength) and plain.
The 15 3/4 inch blade has seen some use (several nicks) but we
can not determine that they are period; they are old but maybe not
old enough (but they may be). Blade firm in the hilt. The fluted
ivory grip has chips and some fine small cracks, as should be expected.
Worth every penny of £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
item reference AA91 (0070). Further / full sized images available
