Measuring 6 1/2 inches in the closed position, this pistol has a tapered octagon barrel in German silver positioned on top of a single blade pocketknife. The 3 3/4 inch spearpoint knife blade is marked "NON-XLL/UNWIN/RODGERS" on the left ricasso. The barrel is stamped with a pair of "crossed scepter" proofs on the upper left, "UNWIN&RODGERS/PATENTEES.SHEFFIELD" on the left, and "NON-XLL" on the right.

Rating Definition:

Very good, the German silver showing mostly bright with the remainder showing mostly a grey patina with scattered extensive light pitting visible on the blade, hammer, and breech. The grip scales are very fine with some scattered light handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
