This unique double barrel knife pistol is similar in appearance to other examples which often bear Liege proofs, except that those knife pistols often exhibit a blade which folds downward, locking into the area where the triggers are housed. This example is entirely unmarked and features smoothbore barrels of approximately .46 caliber or 12mm, a 5 1/4 inch folding spearpoint knife blade that folds upward between the barrel, corkscrew triggers that unfold when the hammers are cocked, and stag grip scales.

Rating Definition:

Very fine with mostly bright metal surfaces, some minor oxidation, and general mild wear. The grip scales are also very fine with some mild wear. The firearm mechanisms are fine. The knife blade does not secure closed and has a notch near the base. A very interesting piece that would have had its carrier prepared for almost any situation!
