Description

Sheffield England EM DICKINSON INVICTA garter dagger stiletto knife with “tree branch” polished bone and silver fittings handle, late 1890th; RARE

Scarce circa 1890-1900 high quality lady’s Invicta “garter dagger” concealed-carry knife with dual-edge stiletto blade and an attractive carved “tree branch” polished bone handle with  silver fittings. Excellent overall condition; made by the E.M. DICKINSON (registered in 1870) in Sheffield, England. Invicta means “undefeated” or “unconquered” in Latin – a mighty name for a small dagger!

The dagger is in lightly used condition; the blade appears to have an original edge; the tip is intact. All handle parts are tight with no play. Ricasso is stamped E.M. / DICKINSON / SHEFFIELD on one side and INVICTA / ENGLAND on the other. The knife is about 7-1/4″ / 18.5 cm; the blade is about 3-1/8″ / 8 cm long. The handle looks like a polished bone or a similar material; it is excellent and problem-free; silver band under the guard is near-perfect; the guard is German silver. There is no sheath. Excellent and hard to find Sheffield England EM DICKINSON INVICTA garter dagger stiletto boot knife in top shape – still in serviceable condition, even after 100 plus years – a great find!
