NO LONGER AVAILABLE


This nice small American fighting dirk dates to the early decades of the 19th century. Some authors ascribe these being produced in Baltimore and sold dock-side to sailors. It's a thrusting weapon, reminiscent of a stiletto.
Mounted with coin-silver, with a checkered grip, it bears a 11.5 cm long blade. The back of the scabbard has the owner's initials scratched into it - ADJ or ADT. The hilt is loose, due to its feeble construction, the lower bolster has a small tear. Blade is in fine shape, with a nice uniform patina.
