**SOLD**SOLD**25/4**Victorian Era Spanish Concealed Spanish Toledo Etched Blade ‘Reuerdo’ (Commemorative or In Memory) & ‘Punales D Toledo’ (Dagger Of Toledo) Expertly Disguised As A Small Wooden Branch / Stick. (ED 2224 Daggers & Swords) - ED 2224
This is an attractive, ingenious concealed, dagger most likely made some time in the Victorian era. The dagger in its scabbard has the convincing appearance of a harmless small branch or stick of wood from a tree. In its scabbard the dagger measures 7 ¾” in length. The dagger is released from the scabbard by depressing a small button on the handle section which is disguised as a bud nodule. The dagger has a 4 ¼” long blade which tapers to a pin sharp point. The left & right sides of the blade have blued and gilt scrollwork and etching, the left side ‘Recuerdo’ (Spanish- Commemorate or in Memory), the right ‘Punales D Toledo’ (Dagger of Toledo). The Spanish city of Toledo is famous for its history of quality sword smithing. The hilt has a scabbard retaining clip operated by the concealed button on the handle. The throat of the scabbard has a small brass insert which fits the retaining catch perfectly. The varnished handle and scabbard are in excellent undamaged condition. The disguise is so good, we are uncertain if the handle and scabbard are made from an actual hollowed out branch from a tree / cane or if it is made of quality papier-mâché (treated shredded & mashed paper) which C 1725 began to appear as a robust low-cost alternative to similarly treated plaster or carved wood in architecture. Patents appeared for treating laminated sheets of paper with linseed oil to produce waterproof panels in 1772. In the Georgian & Victorian eras this material was used for building coach door panels, trays, chair backs, structural panels & Sword Sticks.

Emphasis is placed on a meaty appearance with good harmony and alignment as a knife should be.

Original British WW1 Medieval Halberd Pole Arm Head Form Improvised Trench Fighting Axe / War Hammer. (ED 2217 Edged Weapons & Swords) - ED 2217
During WW1 Military Units on both sides improvised their own trench warfare weapons which they saw as being of more use than issued weapons, when fighting hand to hand. This excellent unusual improvised British trench fighting axe in the form of a medieval halberd head (A halberd also called halbard, halbert or Swiss voulge is a two-handed pole weapon that came to prominent use during the 14th and 15th centuries). This is not a decorative replica of a Medieval halberd axe head but was definitely made for use in close quarter battle. Usually a halberd would have be attached to a long pole but the full tang hilt of ours has WW1 period composite scales secured by copper rivets to allow use in confined spaces. The axe made of 6mm thick steel, measures 7 ½” from the broadest part of the cutting edge to the pointed end of the armour / helmet piercing pointed hammer head. The sharpened cutting edge of the axe head measures 5 ¾” from tip to tip and the underside of the blade has a notch most likely used to rip open the armour of a fallen enemy (similar to how a can opener operates). The overall length of the axe is 11 ½”. The axe weighs a hefty 2lbs 1oz. The price for this hard to find reminder of the brutal nature of trench warfare includes UK delivery. ED 2217
