BRITISH GEORGIAN MIDSHIPMAN'S NAVAL DIRK

$395.00

Description

This early 19th c. British midshipman's dirk is 28 cm-long, and is mounted with a 20 cm-long curved blade that has acquired a nice dark patina, as have all the other parts of the dirk. Amazingly, most of the original scabbard survived, being of delicate construction. Dirk shows honest wear from being carried on watch aboard his majesty's ships during the turbulent and glorious decades of the Royal Navy.
