Inexpensive way to start collecting.
Set of Three: These are being sold as a set. Three post war F-S style daggers. Two on the left are British, the one on the right is French. One has original sheath, one has a handmade sheath, and one is without. Sheaths to fit are easily found on ebay for this size knife. The blades are all six inches long. Therefore these are about 7/8ths size, sometimes referred to as Agent's dagger size. The handles are tight. The one on the left had the handle covered in leather by a previous owner with a ring for attaching a lanyard. The stag handled one has speckling-staining but no rust. Three very nice daggers, including shipping in the US. ON SALE NOW FOR $220.00 OBO
