Still reducing the collection. Offered is an 8 1/2″ antique knife. I’ve had several collectors and knife makers look it over and the consensus is that the knife’s markings and style is French from the late 17th to mid-18th Century. The handle is two piece cast brass with the Lion’s head with the the details in the mane still very good. The drop point was designed to discourage knife fights at the dinner table (so I’m told). This would be a grand addition to any knife collection. I am asking $1450.00 O.B.O. which will include insured shipping to the lower 48. Thank you so much for looking.
