SPANISH ALBACETE KNIFE OF EXCELLENT QUALITY, CA.1790

$895.00

Description

This late 18th-early 19th c. cuchillo o puñal albaceteño is mounted with a 21 cm-long blade, which has a pronounced 10 cm double-edge at the foible. Knife is 31 cm-long overall. Blade is inlaid with brass plaques at the forte, decorated en suite with the brass sheath. Having a sheath remaining together with the knife is rather rare, and significantly adds to the value. Blade has some bites of rusts and discoloration, but is still very nice overall, as is the knife itself, which is tight, and feels just right in the hand. An excellent late 18th c. example!
