French Percussion Knife Pistol

.32 caliber, 4.125" round barrel knife-pistol with 4.25" spear point blade, marked BREVETTE / PARIS in two lines on the ricasso. Additional tools include a hoof pick and auger bit. Steel mounts with mother-of-pearl scales.



Very good; steel gray patina on blade with oxidized age staining, strong remnants of blue on the barrel. Scales crisp and fine. A very nice example of a very attractive 19th century knife-pistol.

Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium

If you are purchasing a firearm that requires an FFL or C&R and you do not have one, we can transfer the gun to a firearms dealer of your choice. We will transfer and ship the firearm to them, and they will then transfer it to you. Any charges for this service (which may include a background check) are between you and the dealer. If you come to Cowan’s in person to pick up your purchase(s), we can transfer a long gun to you directly. Handguns can only be transferred to Ohio residents.
