A rare French C.1800's Napoleonic Naval Officer's Dirk
This is a scarce and rare French C.1800's Napoleonic Naval Officer's Dirk. The dirk comprises a polished steel hilt with finely chequered ebony grip and single-fullered blade. It comes complete with its original leather and steel mounted scabbard. I have listed it as French because they tended to carry naval dirks with black ebony grips as opposed to British naval dirks of this period that invariably had grips made from either ivory or bone. It is certainly an unusual piece and worthy of further research.
Condition of the Dirk
In very good overall condition with light wear to the scabbard.
Specifications of the Dirk
Blade length is 16 inches (30 inches overall).
