Georgian Era C1750 British Naval Midshipman’s Dirk / Dagger With Antique Marine Ivory Hilt & Scabbard. Sn 19128 - Sn 19128
Naval forces began to use dirks in the mid to late 1700s. Historians differ on whether dirks originated with the Danish Navy or the British Royal Navy but they were widely used by England’s sea service. During the period 1780 to 1820, the Officer/ Midshipmen strength of the Royal Navy varied from about 3,500 to 6,000. Despite the popular notion that only Midshipmen used dirks, early paintings show dirks worn by high-ranking Naval Officers as well as Midshipmen. This original British Navy Midshipman’s fighting dirk has a clean 8 ½” long double edged dagger blade. The blade has no visible manufacturer or date marks. The dirk measures 12” overall and has an antique marine ivory handle with brass finger guard and ball top brass pommel cap. The dirk is complete with original brass mounted leather scabbard which has a single brass hanging ring. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are clean and intact. The price for this Georgian era Midshipman’s dirk with scabbard includes UK delivery. Sn 19128 (NB Ivory Content Comprises less Than 10% Volume & Weight)

**RARE**ANCIENT CIRCA 15TH CENTURY RENAISSANCE RONDEL ETCHED DAGGER BLADE**Re-Fitted In The Victoran Era With Correct Rondel Dagger Form Polished Walnut & White Metal Hilt. ED 2576 - ED 2576
The rondel dagger was a stabbing weapon very popular as a sidearm throughout Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries . While extremely simple in basic design, the rondel dagger has been executed in an amazing variety of ways. Many historical examples of this style of weapon, which features disc-shaped rondels on one or both ends of the hilt, survive today. The discs at the "pommel" and/or "guard" may be solid metal, layers of metal and wood, or some other combination. The blade is seen in a myriad of forms, including single-edged flat or hollow-ground, double-edged, triangular with little or no edge, diamond section and others. This is an excellent original C15th century Rondel blade re hilted to a high quality at some point in its life most likely during the Victorian era when the revival of interest in renaissance era weapons took place. Its original C15th Century flat diamond section blade is clean and crisply etched on both sides with foliate imagery and winged Cherub devices. The blade is 13” length and it measures 18 ½” overall length.
