    Description

    Rare Combination Knife Pistol Cane with Twisted Horn Handle.

    Overall length is 35-inches. The gun scabbard and blade scabbard is made of three sections of fine wood made to appear as bamboo. The bottom section pulls off to reveal a wicked four-sided twisted stiletto with a needle tip that measures approximately 11-inches. Note: To remove the gun and dagger from the sheath of the cane press the button under your thumb and pull straight back. The dagger is 7-inches long and the pistol is 4 1/2-inches for a total length of approximately 12-inches.
    To cock the gun flip out the forward lever and pull the mechanism backwards until a click is felt. The barrel is a twist off add it appears this piece fired a rimfire cartridge. The scabbard has a brass insert that is machined perfectly for this gun so that it can only be placed in one way.
    The dagger blade is double edged with no groove and has a semi oval shape configuration, it comes to a needle tip and is formidable as it extends its length 16-inches including the handle. It is heavy enough to be a cudgel. Rare Cane Curiosa.

    Condition: Very good, with handling wear. Metal parts, with age patina. A few imperfections to wood scabbard appear to give a realistic appearance of bamboo.
