This nice mid-19th c. small American or English-made fighting dirk is mounted with 11 cm-long rhomboid blade, and 9 cm-long coffin handle made of ebony. The ferrule and guard are sterling silver, and were painted gold some time ago. Paint can be easily removed, but I left it as is.
Condition of the blade is a bit rough, the edges and point are still sharp, the guard is loose, but the handle is very tight with the blade. A good, honest 1800s self-defense weapon. Many contemporary newspaper crime pages describe this type of weapon being used fairly often in brawls.
