Description:

Two smooth bore percussion barrels flank the sides of a 11 3/4 inch long spear blade. There are no maker markings but writer believes it to be of French origin. The cross guard also acts as two separate hammers. An area of checkering is featured on the sides of the cross guard. Equipped with a folding trigger. Fitted with two-piece checkered walnut grips. The sheath is leather with a brass tip. Overall length is 16 1/2 inches.

Rating Definition:

Very good. The knife pistol has a mottled gray patina with a smooth dark patina on the cross guard. The grips are very good with a hairline stress crack at a screw head and some minor handling marks. Mechanically fine. The sheath is good showing overall flaking of the leather.
