Measuring 3 1/2 inches long when closed and decocked, the main body of the knife is made from German silver, with engraved floral patterns on the side scales and an open panel suitable for inscription on one side. Two single edged spear point blades are included, 1 3/4 and 1 1/8 inches long, with no visible markings. The firing mechanism is a spring loaded striker, controlled by a low-profile firing stud. Loading is accomplished with a quick-detach barrel, which is fitted with an in-line nipple and held in place by a spring loaded retainer; removing the barrel for loading or cleaning is quick and easy.

Rating Definition:

Very good, with a mixed gray patina and a small amount of shallow pitting on the steel components, and some minor dings and dents on the body. Mechanically excellent.
