ESTAING KNIVES: knives designed in 1780 by ADMIRAL D’ESTAING for use on board; they can be used for dining, for cutting or for defense. The special design of this folder allows to use its blade in its closed position as, due to its length, it protrudes from the handle when folded. If the owner needs to work with a longer blade, he can open it and use its whole length. The knife also has a locking mechanism to prevent a dangerous accidental closing of the long keen edged blade. This very nice example is characterized by a genuine stag handle and has a 26 cm long carbon steel blade with steel fittings. The knife comes complete with its original brown leather sheath. Blade, which slides smoothly and securely into its sheath, is bright with just some overall pin prick pitting, it shows signs from sharpening especially on the tip. Razor sharp. It opens properly and lock up tightly. Estaing knife is just over 27 cm long folded. The leather sheath shows a little bit of wear commensurate with use, but remains in excellent conditions.
