Double-Barrel Percussion Knife Pistol

.38 caliber 3.875" long round smooth bore barrels (2) mounted on either side of a 14" spear point knife blade. Upper guard doubles as pair of percussion hammers, which when cocked reveal the two percussion nipples and pair of folding triggers which descend from the grip. Lower quillons marked "TI" on one side and "1847" on the other, with upper quillons/hammer spurs marked  "33" on one and with a crowned/K Belgian comptrollers mark on the other. The matching "33" assembly number is found on the reverse ricasso of the knife blade, and the same crown/K proof is found on the obverse ricasso. Grooved pistol-gripped stock is 5.125" long, with the overall length of the knife pistol about 19.5". Leather scabbard with brass mounts and frog hook at throat.

Condition:

Very good overall condition. The unique pistol action functions correctly. Blade and barrels with smooth steel gray patina. Wood grips in nice condition with expected bumps and dings. Scabbard in good condition with wear and crazing to the leather, and a couple of tears due to wear from the pistol barrels. Brass mounts with untouched patina.
