A very good and original 19th Century Russian Caucasian Kindjal Dagger Knife. This is typical of the kind of type of knife that would have been carried throughout Russia and particularly in the southern region of the Caucasus where it found favour with the Cossacks and was very much part of their everyday military and civilian equipment. The kindjal comprises an attractive light horn double slab grip fixed with iron pins. The hilt ferrule is ribbed brass and the blade is of slender proportions, double-edged and with a wicked stiletto point. This would have been a devastatingly effective weapon in the hand. The blade has the remnants of a maker's stamp near the blade forte. It is contained in a decorated brass and steel scabbard. Condition of both dagger and scabbard is very good. Blade length is 14 inches (20 inches overall).
