Excellent overall condition, considering the age; made by the famous Joseph Allen & Sons in Sheffield, England. Sheffield-made knives always played a huge part in American history. From the Gold Rushes in California and Yukon to the battles the Civil War and in the frontier – Sheffield Bowies and daggers were hugely popular in every corner of the United States. This exact type is illustrated in the 1905 issue of American DIAMOND EDGE mail-in catalog – the knife is listed as “Best quality English steel blade” dirk (see the page’s scan attached; the ad is not included with the knife).

Slightly used condition with no damage to the blade or the handle – much better than average shape for the type. Spear-point blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. No cracks on the stag; all handle parts are solid. Ricasso is stamped NON•XLL / JOSEPH / ALLEN & SONS / SHEFFIELD / ENGLAND on one side. The dagger is about 9-1/8″ / 23.2 cm overall; the blade is about 4-1/2″ / 11.5 cm long. Genuine European stag handle with German silver handguard and very fancy silver collar band & butt plate. All parts are tight with no play; there is no sheath.  Hard to find British garter dagger Joseph Allen Sons 1890th stiletto in great condition; you will not be disappointed.
