ESTAING KNIVES: knives designed in 1780 by ADMIRAL D’ESTAING for use on board; they can be used for dining, for cutting or for defense. The special design of this folder allows to use its blade in its closed position as, due to its length, it protrudes from the handle when folded. If the owner needs to work with a longer blade, he can open it and use its whole lenght. The knife also has a locking mechanism to prevent a dangerous accidental closing of the long keen edged blade. This very nice example is characterized by a genuine stag handle and has a 10 5/8” – 27 cm long carbon steel blade. with nickel silver fittings. The knife comes complete with its original brown leather sheath. Blade, which slides smoothly and securely into its sheath, is bright and clean with just very light pin prick pitting. Estaing knife has an overall length of 15 3/8" – 39 cm total. Folded it is 11 1/8” - 28,5 cm long. The leather sheath shows a little bit of use and wear, but remains in very good conditions. Nickel silver tip. PRICE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
