SOLD SOLD (22/03) 19th Century Spanish Navaja Folding Fighting / Utility Knife With Sharp Scimitar Form Blade, Decorated Bone & Brass Scales. Sn 21541 - 21541
The Navaja is a traditional Spanish folding-blade fighting and utility knife. One of the oldest folding knife patterns still in production, the first true Navajas originated in the Andalusian region of southern Spain. In Spain, the term navaja is often used to generally describe all folding-blade knives. The etymology of the word navaja is derived from the Latin novacula, meaning razor, and the Andalusian knife known as the navaja is thought to have derived from the navaja de afeitar, or straight razor used for shaving. Like the straight razor, the navaja's blade folds into the handle when not in use. In Spain the navaja epitomized the concept of a defensive knife to be carried at all times on the person. The design is thought to have been first adopted by the working classes - mule drivers, teamsters, artisans, and sailors as well as by the majos, the "gentlemen of the lower class" of Andalusia. Its association with barateros, pícaros, jácaros and rufos (gamblers, rogues, ruffians, and thugs) comes from its frequent use as a weapon of the underworld, where it was often used to enforce the collection of gambling debts or to rob innocent victims. This example has the form and characteristics of those made in the 19th Century. The flamboyant razor sharp steel blade in scimitar form is 7 ½” in length and tapers to a pin sharp point. It has light staining consistent with age. The knife measures 16” overall length when open. The knife has Polished bone & brass section scales secured by brass pins and decorated with small inlaid studs. The scales are secure but do have areas of wear consistent with agell. Lower section of the hilt has a small brass lanyard ring. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 21541 (drawers office)

Victorian Era North West Frontier Pesh-Kabz Choora / Khyber Afghan Armour Piercing Knife With Ornately Decorated Polished Bone Sectioned Grips & Scabbard. Sn 21449:8 - 21449:8
The Pesh-Kabz or Choora is a type of Perso-Afghan knife designed to penetrate chain mail armour (see page 494 of Stone's book 'A Glossary Of Arms & Armour'). The knives were typically used as a thrusting weapon, however, the wide ‘T’ section blade also has considerable slicing performance, and as such may also be used effectively with slashing or cutting strokes. During the British Colonial rule in India, the British frequently referred to all Afghan blades of this pattern collectively as "Afghan knives" or "Khyber knives", after the Khyber Pass that marked the transition from British India to the nation of Afghanistan. In India, manufacture of the pesh-kabz was centred in the northern city of Bhera, now part of Pakistan. During the First and Second Anglo-Afghan wars, the pesh-kabz was frequently the weapon of choice for finishing off wounded British and colonial troops, as the Afghan tribesmen did not take prisoners except for use as hostages. This is an attractive original example of the pesh-kabz / choora made in the Victorian era. It has an 8 ¼” single edged T section blade (13 ¼” overall). The blade with single edge narrows to a pin sharp point and its cutting edge is sharp. The spine of the blade has hand tooled decoration. The blade has staining consistent with age. It has the correct curved pronged pommel with small metal plate protrusion with hole for wrist cord and finger guard. The grip frame is decorated with hand tooled geometric and foliate designs with naïve coloured enamel insets and highlights. The scales are formed from sections of polished bone, secured by a series of pins. The knife is complete with its original wood lined, brass covered scabbard. The scabbard has ornate hand tooled decoration. The price for this attractive Khyber knife includes UK delivery. Sn 21449:8 (in fighting knives box)
