17th-18th century, of classic form which evolved into the navaja. 5 1/4” length with a slightly curved edge, rounded back wedge section blade with suspension hole to the butt. Pierced for its axle. Excellent preservation for the period. As sailors were universally prohibited and prevented from owing pointed knives, the pirate attribution may be applied with confidence. Purchased from a Myrtle Beach Florida dive and salvage shop in the 1980s. Genuine pirate’s weapon from the heyday of piracy preying on the Spanish treasure ships.
