Description Naval dirk that has a steel blade that has traces of engraving that almost cannot be seen because the blade is so pitted and corroded (only a pair of crossed flags and some foliage motifs are dimly visible). The 2 1/2" long steel cross guard is very delicate and thin and the quillions curve in opposite directions. The bone grip is square and carved on one side with vertical lines and on the reverse with cross hatching and a cross design at the pommel end. It appears to be missing a pommel cap.
