This is a wonderful British midshipman's naval dirk that dates from the 19th century. Dirks were caryed by midshipmen, and by volunteers, which was the last step before becomeing a midshipman. There was no oficial patterned naval dirk until 1865, those that came before that time were either custom made, or put together from spare parts. The lions head pommel and back-strap on this dirk appear to be that of a British M1827 naval officers sword.All metal parts of the hilt are brass.The grip is made of IV**Y, and it may have been original to the pommel. The guard expands from a width of 5/16" at the pommel to 1 7/16" at its widest. The guard is tight to the blade. The pommel and grip are tight together, but they can be turned a little in one direction, and tighten up whern turned back into place. The blade is very tipical in style to dirks of the era. At the ricaso you can clearly read "MADE IN" and then bellow that it looks like "GERMANY" but the guard is covering part of the text. The blade is double edged and unfullered. It is so sharply curved that it's dificult to get an acurate measurment. In a strait line from the center of the ricaso to the point it measures 15 3/8", along the outside edge, following the curve it is 17 1/2". overal length, in a strait line is 20 7/8". The leather scabbard is not original to the dirk. I made it. Payment is due within 3 days from the end of the sale. Please e-mail me for international shipping cost.
