An incredibly fascinating and rare knife/percussion pistol by the Belgian-French gunmakers of Dumonthier & Sons. Nestled between the double barrels of this gun lies a dagger, all of which are covered in remarkably intricate engraving. The spiral-formed handle and gold-gilding adds a touch of elegance to this lethal firearm. Dumonthier & Sons were legendary for their combination weapons, making several versions of unique knife/pistol weapon, with the intention to provide protection to the user between re-loads. This version, by far, is as beautiful as it is deadly.
This knife/pistol is accompanied by it’s original sheath and is marked “Dumontier” on the knife blade.
