John Newton Company Sheffield England garter dagger, Victorian era stiletto knife with stag handle and original sheath. Made in the 1890th; rare short-lived maker
Scarce Victorian era lady’s “garter dagger” concealed-carry knife with dual-edge stiletto blade, genuine stag with German silver fittings handle and original leather sheath. Great overall condition, considering the age; made in the 1890th by John Newton & Company in Sheffield, England; a scarce and hard to find maker. This stiletto dagger is still in serviceable condition after 100 plus years – a great find!
The dagger is obviously used, but it is still in better than average condition for the type. Dual-edge saber point blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. Ricasso is stamped JOHN NEWTON & Co / SHEFFIELD / ENGLAND on one side; J. Newton’s “leaping frog” logo on the other. The dagger is about 8-1/8″ / 20.5 cm; the blade is about 4-1/8″ / 10.5 cm long. Genuine stag handle with German silver guard, band, and butt cap; all parts are solid with no play. Original leather sheath is in very good shape, considering the age, but the garter hanger loop is gone. Still, this rare Victorian era John Newton Company Sheffield England garter dagger with original sheath is very hard to find these days; don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
