*SOLD LAYAWAY 10/7***VERY LARGE**19th Century Spanish Navaja Folding Fighting / Utility Lock Knife With Sharp Scimitar Form Blade, Brass & Polished Horn Section Scales. ED 2394 - ED 2394
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 quality made example has the form and characteristics of those made in the 19th Century and is very large. The flamboyant razor sharp steel blade in scimitar form is 11 ½” in length and tapers to a pin sharp point. It has staining consistent with age. One side of the blade is marked ‘Navajas’ alongside other unreadable rubbed lettering. The knife measures 23 ¾” overall length when open. The knife has Polished Horn & brass section scales secured by brass pins. The bolsters and typical ball shaped lower bolsters are brass. The spine of the blade at the upper bolsters has a locking catch with lanyard ring. The blade is released for closing by pulling on the ring. The locking action is firm. The price for this impressive fighting / utility knife includes UK delivery. ED 2394 (drawers office)

SOLD SOLD (10/07) **MINT BORES**QUALITY MAKER**DURS EGG LONDON**C1830 Double Barrelled 20 Bore Percussion ‘Howdah’ Pistol With Captive Steel Ram Rod. Sn 21880 - 21880
The famous Durs Egg (1748–1831) was a Swiss-born British gunmaker, noted for his quality pistols and for his company's production of the Ferguson rifle. Egg was apprenticed in Solothurn and Paris before establishing his own business in London in 1772. He was a contemporary of Joseph Manton, Jean Samuel Pauly and the uncle of Joseph Egg. When the famous gunsmith Durs Egg died in 1831 his Son John Egg took over the business operating at Haymarket London. In 1839 The business name reverted to Durs Egg at 4 Pall Mall London until 1854 then at 4 Colonnade Pall Mall from 1855 to 1865. The Howdah pistol was a large-calibre handgun, often with two or four barrels, used in India and Africa from the beginning of the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century, during the period of British Colonial rule. It was typically intended for defence against Tigers, Lions, and other dangerous animals that might be encountered in remote areas. The term "howdah pistol" comes from the howdah, a large platform mounted on the back of an Elephant. Hunters, especially during the period of the British Raj in India, used Howdahs as a platform for hunting wild animals and needed large-calibre side-arms for protection from animal attacks at close quarters. The earliest Howdah pistols were flintlock designs, and it was not until about 60 years later percussion models in single or double barrel configuration were seen. Even though Howdah pistols were designed for emergency defence from dangerous animals in Africa and India, British Officers adopted them as holster pistols for personal protection in other far-flung outposts of the British Empire. This is an excellent, original, percussion double barrel Howdah pistol by the prestigious gunmaker Durs Egg of London. Its side by side blued steel barrels are 6” in length and are 20 Bore. It measures 12 ¼” overall length. The smooth bores are near mint clean & bright. It has a broad top rib signed ‘London’ and has a brass bead fore sight. It is complete with captive steel ram rod. The all original walnut stock has no damage, has chequered panels at the grip and inlaid void German silver escutcheon on top of the wrist. It has double triggers and heavy Dolphin hammers. Its action plates, action tang, trigger guard with extended tang and Pineapple finial & hammers are tooled with foliate decoration. Both action plates are crisply signed 'D. Egg’. The pistol cocks and dry fires crisply. The price for this percussion pistol by a quality gunmaker includes UK delivery.
