RARE STAG HANDLE FOLDING LOCK BLADE KNIFE MARKED DUFILHO


⭕ RARE STAG HANDLE FOLDING LOCK BLADE KNIFE MARKED DUFILHO.
THIS KNIFE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. IT MEASURES 10 1/4 INCHES CLOSED AND 19 INCHES IN THE OPEN POSITION. THE KNIFE WAS MADE BY WELL KNOWN CUTLER AGRUIDER DUFILHO. Agruider Dufilho manufactured quality edged weapons for Confederate officers during that conflict but the numbers of edged weapons he made are lost to time. THIS KNIFE APPEARS TO HAVE NEVER BEEN SHARPENED, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE STAG SCALES ARE A LITTLE LOOSE NEAR THE BOLSTER, PIN MAY HAVE PULLED LOOSE A LITTLE, BUT STILL IN PLACE. ONE TINY MINUTE HAIRLINE NEAR ONE OF THE PINS BUT HARDLY NOTICEABLE, JUST MENTIONING THIS FOR ACCURACY.THE RING TO PULL THE SPRING BACK TO UNLOCK IT, IS NOT ORIGINAL, BUT WE PHOTOGRAPHED IT TO SHOW FUNCTIONALITY. THE BLADE IS PATINATED, BUT IS NOT PITTED, SHOWS NORMAL OXIDATION FROM AGE. THE ENGRAVED LINES ARE ALL HAND TOOLED, AND ALL IN ALL THIS KNIFE IS EXTREMELY TIGHT WITHOUT ANY PLAY. MUST SEE AND HOLD TO APPRECIATE.
