SOLD SOLD (23/06) 19th Century Spanish Navaja Folding Fighting / Utility Knife With Razor Sharp Scimitar Form Blade, Decorated Polished Tortoiseshell, Ivory & Brass Section Scales. 19592 - 19592
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 and is large. The flamboyant, laser etched razor sharp steel blade *see images* in scimitar form is 15 ½ cm in length (34 ¾ cm overall) and tapers to a sharp point, It has light staining consistent with age. ‘Girodias’ and trademark is stamped to the cheek of the blade. The knife has Ivory and polished tortoiseshell *slight surface glaze* with figure on horseback with spear, brass insert insets and brass Section Scales. The brass sections have scalloped decoration. The top brass section has a small brass lanyard ring. All sections are secured by brass pins. The scales are secured by rivets. The price for this impressive fighting / utility knife includes UK delivery. 19592. (Drawers)

SOLD SOLD (24/06) *Scarce* Dutch ‘Stormdolk’ M-1915 Fighting Knife, Scabbard and Frog. 19479. - 19479
This is an excellent example of the Dutch M-1915 Fighting Knife. The knife was known in Dutch service as the ‘Stormdolk’, and is often referred to by collectors as a Dutch Commando Knife, as some of the Dutch Commando forces that operated with the British during World War II chose to carry this knife rather than the British special forces standard issue Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife. The knives were produced from 1915 until the Germans overran Holland in 1940. After the German occupation, many of the knives served as ersatz fighting knives for the German military, both in their original condition and sometimes as modified variants. The knife, as originally produced was manufactured with a 20 ½ cm stiletto blade and had an overall length of about 33 ¾ cm. The blade is heat blued with use related wear. The solid wood wooden handle was oval in cross section, with eight grasping grooves to enhance the grip of the knife. The grip was otherwise smooth, with a bulbous pommel cap area. The front of the oval cross guard is marked ‘8874 E’. The obverse ricasso and grip ferrule are both marked with (C) / Z inspection marks. The wooden pommel cap is marked with the usual Dutch military (Crown / Z) inside an oval inspection mark. The leather covered metal scabbard is in nice condition with a good aged patina. The end of the front of the scabbard is stamped with what appears to read ‘F’, possibly a unit designation, and the rear is stamped ‘7235A’. Overall this is a really outstanding example of a scarce World War I- World II era Dutch military fighting knife. The price includes UK delivery. 19479. (Other Countries 3)
