Add to Cart

A beautiful historical blade, based on the premier knives produced by the San Francisco firm of Will & Finck in the mid-1800's. The push dagger was intended as a concealed or boot knife, and was very popular in the Old West, particularly among the professional gamblers of the time. 

The blade is double-edged, with a soft polish. The tang is integral and comfortable between the fingers. The pommel is hand-threaded and a polished bushing is screwed down and peined. The handle is carved from Resin +S Ivory, and has a remarkably accurate grain pattern. Finger recesses provide a firm grip..

The sheath is hand carved wood with a black deerskin cover. The clip is formed from nickel-silver and hand-hammered. The signature tip has a tie down ring like many of the original W & F knives. 

The overall length of the knife is 7", and the blade is 3.5" long to the plunge line. The blade i 1/4" thick 1 1/2" wide. The handle is 3.5" wide.
