Dagger, Toledo Artillery Factory 19th flag

Object description :

"Dagger, Toledo Artillery Factory 19th"
Spanish dagger, from the Fabrica de Artilleria de Toledo. From the 1850s, the markings were simplified, and we find either the inscription "Fabrica de Toledo", or simply as here "Toledo". It is therefore not a souvenir for tourists from the 1960s...
BLADE: It is a real steel blade, ending in a long "carp's tongue". She is very sharp. It is therefore probably a hunting dagger intended to be used to prepare the animal already killed.
Etchings decorate each side. Inscription "TOLEDO" on one side of the ricasso. Blade length 19 cm, thickness at the ricasso 3.5 mm
MOUNT: Guard with fleur-de-lis motif in chiselled brass.
Cut and chiseled brass ferrule
Chiseled brass pommel, ending in a button which blocks the end of the tang of the blade.
Grip in chiseled steel, with heraldic decoration.
One of the faces of the grip is worn by the contact of the hand of the owner. This demonstrates a long use of this weapon, which was therefore not a decorative object that would have remained in a showcase.
SHEATH: leather with iron scabbard entrance and chiseled iron snap.
The entrance of the scabbard is equipped with a button to allow the dagger to be attached to a baldric.
This archaic character confirms the age of the piece.
Nice dagger, well complete, example of 19th century Spanish know-how.
