Default Faca de Ponta

I just bought this Faca de Ponta, I just couldnīt resist it so now I am just waiting for it to arrive so I can hold it in my hand....
I blame Sajen for it.... After seeing his fantastic collection of Faca de Ponta I also wanted at least a couple....
Here are the sellers pictures of it....

Best,
Stefan

I agree, truly stunning. But I ask, is this really a Faca de Ponta? All other examples I have seen have been single edged.

Hi Stefan,

A very nice example from end of the 19th century. How long is it?
