This small American silver-mounted dirk dates to the early decades of the 19th century. Blade is 9 cm. long, diamond in cross-section. Sheath frog has been period-removed, perhaps for a more convenient concealment. The cross-guard is horizontally recurved, which is an unusual feature. Hilt shows age looseness, in part due to the grip shrinkage over time, as is almost universally the case with these small dirks. The patina on the silver surfaces is nice and uniform.
