Based on the French briquet but about 20% smaller throughout to accommodate close quarter shipboard fighting. One piece brass hilt with ball quillon and ribbed grip. 21 3/4” curved broad fullered blade. Blade predominately bright, shows wrought iron texture including a forging flaw toward the point. Produced in the turbulent years before the Civil War when piracy was rampant and merchant ships were routinely stocked with weapons such as this.
