Impressive German hunting sword combination oddity revolver, approximately caliber 8mm / .32 center fire. Stag grip with classic hunting sword guard and original scabbard measuring approximately 22˝” overall with nearly 16” blade, nickel-plated revolver and sword mounts. The blade shows fine etching in typical Germanic hunting motifs with stag, fox and hounds. The blade shows W K & C markings; one of the better known Solingen makers and the pistol shows German U proofs (Untersuchung / inspection) The condition is excellent overall with just some slight beginning erosion and pinprick pitting  with nearly 100% of the etching on the blade; the stag grips are very fine with slight normal aging; the action is working; the scabbard is very good plus with some minor scuffs and normal slight wear; the revolver is six-shot and shows an unusual feature in that it has a gate on each side of the frame one of which the cartridges are ejected through; this particular knife pistol is featured in an article, January 1978, “Man at Arms”, page 22 by Charles M. Grimes, a copy is pictured and also included.
An exceptional rarity in perfect working order
