Throughout history, people have loved to shoot people that they didn't like. But then, people have also been fun of stabbing them too. Shoot or stab? What's a warrior to do? Well, fret no more, here's your answer; the 18th Century English Pistol Dagger, when you want the best of both worlds.
This style of pistol dagger was very real and very deadly in history. The premise being that, because a flintlock pistol was very slow to load, a combatant could fire off a round as his or her enemy approached, then still have an effective pistol dagger when the enemy closed. A clumsy sentence, I know, but a very efficient pistol dagger.
This pistol dagger is a reproduction of an actual English flintlock pistol dagger that was made in London in the early 18th century (1700s for those of you chronologically impaired). The blade is made from a weathered zinc-alloy. The hardware is brass and features an etched, simulated ivory handle.
A 3 1/2 inch brass barrel hides behind the 11 inch blade and a regal horse head holds the hanging ring in it's mouth. The locks and trigger are fully functional (that is, you can cock it and activate the firing mechanism by squeezing the trigger), although the gun cannot actually be fired.
Truly a perfect pistol dagger for pirate or highwayman alike. Equally great as a display piece in any room.
