Continental Cutlery Co Sheffield garter dagger concealed stiletto knife with polished bone handle and German silver fittings, 1880th; RARE maker

Scarce circa 1870-1889 concealed-carry lady’s “garter dagger” with dual-edge stiletto blade and polished bone handle. Very good overall condition, considering the age; made by the Continental Cutlery Co in Sheffield, England. Sheffield-made knives always played a big part in the 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.

Used, but better than average condition; the blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. Polished bone handle had developed a crack but all handle parts are solid with no play. Ricasso is stamped CONTINENTAL / CUTLERY CO. / SHEFFIELD on one side. The dagger is about 7-5/8″ / 19.5 cm overall; the blade is about 3-7/8″ / 10 cm long. Polished bone handle is topped with the band and slim profile oval guard made of German silver. All parts are tight; there is no sheath.  Hard to find Continental Cutlery Co Sheffield garter dagger concealed stiletto knife in very good condition – a great find!
