Title Corsican stiletto
Nationality French
Period c 1830
Sold

This is the cacciatorre Mediterranean knife found all over the western Mediterranean, but principally in Corsica and Sardinia. The mounts are white metal, possibly low grade silver. The grip is ebony and the scabbard is fine calf leather on a wood body. The blade is 5.5" long. It is the classic vendetta knife of the region.

The condition is excellent with a little restoration evident at the pommel and it has 70% of its original lead polish finish to the blade.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
