This fine and early dirk probably dates to the third quarter of the 18th century. It is featured on page 223 of "Accouterments IV" by James R. Johnston. The tapered, double edged, diamond section blade is unmarked. The small serpentine guard is silver and the grip is cherry and octagonal in shape with silver ferrule and base and silver pommel cap. Each facet alternates with either a silver inlaid band or vine and berry silver wire inlay. This is a very fine and well made American dirk. CONDITION: Very good, overall. Blade shows some sharpening to edges and retains a gray patina with some darker areas. Silver retains an unpolished pewter patina. Grip very good showing some minor marks from use. DMG
