(Enter more than $300)
Estimate: $500 - $2,500
Description: NO RESERVE & LOW OPENER. Could this be an early unmarked SCHIVELY ? It is about 7.5" long with blade being a little less than 4" long. Blade is in Kris form (wavy) and made of some form of brass. Mounts also are of brass. Tang extends through and is peened at pommels end. Handle material is horn and octagonal in shape. These are all attributes of early Schively dirks (horn, octagonal handle, brass (sometimes silver) mounts, leather sheath (crosshatched). Brass used on dirk knives is typical of knives that were made for sea farers, or those living in close proximity to the ocean. Brass would not corrode in the salt air! That is likely why Schively used Brass & sometimes silver mounts. It is debatable whether or not this knife was made by H Schively so you (the buyer) decide. The sheath is strikingly similar to how H. Schively made his sheaths.
