Rare 19th C. Danish Combination Bowie knife / Shears by Naible Odense

 

The blade marked Naible Odense. Very unusal design which converts the knife into a pair of shears by releasing a clasp on the grip. The grip is sprung, and has a nice snake detail.  

 

Condition- good overall condition but with minor age related marks as can be seen in the photos. Small loss to the tip of the blade.

 

Dimensions – overall length 37 cm, blade length 22.5 cm
