These hunting knives with built-in pistols were made as hunting sidearms used to dispatch wounded boars and other game. The octagonal to round brass barrel displays light engraving. The action is internal to grip/frame; mechanically fine and smooth. The lanquet displays a hunting scene, an acanthus scroll, and shell among other motifs. The brass frame ribs are scroll-engraved against a diapered ground; knuckle guard is cast with a wonderful male figure on the bow. Spearpoint blade remains in very good condition with no nicks.
