This is a lovely example of a Dagger Dirk that dates from the Civil War Era. It is mounted with a plain, spearpoint blade that measures 6 3/8 inches in length which although reflects cleanings from over the years, does remain in good condition with minor surface staining and light pitting scars. The S-shaped steel guard remains tightly in place.
The lovely ebony hilt is carved in a simple design and has survived in healthy condition as well as remains tight and sturdy. The custom made wooden scabbard is leather covered and fits snuggly to the blade.
Overall the Dagger measures 11 3/8 inches in length. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items.
