19th Century Patch Knife: Rare
Original Item: The Nepal collection never ceases to amaze us and recently we stumbled (literally) upon an unopened crate that hid these rare knives for over a century. These handy knives saw their height in use during the muzzle loading era; perfectly sized to cut away the excess patch material before loading. These hand forged antiques have genuine stag handles and were probably carried in kukri pouches by the Royal Guard of Bhimsen Thapa. There is great variation as you would expect after all these years, but they are generally 6 1/2" to 7 1/2" overall, with blades ranging from 2 3/4" to 3 1/4". Sorry, no selection. Good condition. One knife only, but two styles pictured.
