In good condition, a scarce long bladed Napoleonic British Royal Naval Officer’s Fighting Dirk.
Probably a midshipman’s dirk, but maybe even a more senior officer’s circa 1800 fighting dirk; “fighting” courtesy of its extra long blade.
The 20 7/8 inch blade has some rust patches but not many and is overall good. Blade with some movement in hilt / grip (can be rectified by pushing snap off disposable blade segments between tang and hilt / grip (similar to how it was done in the day). Reeded marine ivory (walrus bone) grip has some age cracks but is good.
You don’t see to many of these and this one is above average. Nicely priced, just £600. Please quote item reference number AF06. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1060-101x19x16 (1.219).
