4 people like this. Do you like this? yes no
An all-steel stiletto like this one, particularly suited for thrusting, was often a gunner's last line of defense after the cannon and other arms available to the gun crew had been used. The triangular blades were often engraved with graduated markings and numbers. These divisions gave the gunner a means of measuring a gun bore and calibre of the ball, the ability to calculate distances, among other tasks.
Overall length: 9.625"
Width of guard: 1.757"
Blade: 5.375" long

Maker: J.F. Schroeder of Southern California.
