9” length (straight measure). The hook form blade with maker’s name N GUAZZINI stamped to the back. One-piece, shaped wood grip slotted to receive the blade. Brass ferrule with iron axel. No spring, a cottage industry item for the man in the streets. Shaped like orchard knives, these allowed peasants to be armed within the law. Particularly lethal for the clandestine (assassin’s) attack which would not need a blade lock.
