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.

RARE, 1990’s Yugoslav / 3rd Balkan Wars Theatre Made Personal Side Arm / Fighting Knife With Etched Panels ‘Death To Fascism Freedom To The People’ & Leather Scabbard. Sn 13895 - 13895
The Yugoslav or 3rd Balkan Wars were a series of ethnically-based wars and insurgencies fought from 1991 to 2001 inside the territory of the former Yugoslavia. These wars accompanied and/or facilitated the breakup of the Yugoslav state, when its constituent republics declared independence, but the issues of ethnic minorities in the new countries (chiefly Serbs, Croats and Albanians) were still unresolved at the time the republics were recognized internationally. The wars are generally considered to be a series of separate but related military conflicts which occurred in, and affected, most of the former Yugoslav republics. Often described as Europe's deadliest since World War II, the conflicts have become infamous for the war crimes involved, including ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and rape. These were the first European conflicts since World War II to be formally judged genocidal in character and many key individual participants were subsequently charged with war crimes. This theatre of War made fighting knife is no doubt a personal side arm / fighting knife of one of the Militia personnel or other armed factions who fought in the Balkans Wars. This heavy knife has a 7 ½” single edged blade with deep swept top edge. The blade is 2 ½” wide at its broadest and tapers to a sharp point making it ideal for chopping, slashing or stabbing in close quarter combat. The blade has etched panels on both side. One side has a ‘clenched fist within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan Script ‘SMRT FASCISMU’ (Death To Fascism) and the reverse has a ‘death’s head skull and crossbones within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan script which roughly translates to ‘Freedom To The People’. It measures 12" overall length and has wood slab scales each inset with grooved alloy mounts. The heavy cross guard is brass. The knife is complete with original leather sheath with single retaining strap and sprung stud fastener. The price for this rare Balkans War piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13895
