So true that plug bayonets remained in use well into the XIX century, serving as hunting knives but preserving their original shape, eventually made with the finest materials.
... As may be seen in the uniform of Spanish King Alfonso XIII (1886-1931) gamekeepers, those with apparent ivory grips, and the two luxury examples residing in the Portuguese Ducal Palace of Vila višosa (Toledo production 1859-1863).

Default Sheath May Help

Ian,

I have a dagger just like yours and, like yours, mine is missing the hilt wrap. I have seen a few of these daggers over the years, so I guess that they are popular but I don't ever recall seeing one with the hilt wrap present. Perhaps the sheath for my dagger will help to confirm your surmise of origin or even narrow it down a bit.

Sincerely,
RobT

Hi RobT,

Yes, a twin for mine. The scabbard could be from the Philippines, although the belt loop looks more Mexican. On looking back through my records, the sale receipt had a note "Mexican?", and now I'm not so sure it is from the Philippines. In either case, "Spanish Colonial" would fit.

Ian.

Another small Filipino dagger (bottom) with this blade profile. I'm confident this one is of an Ilokano style and made either in Northern or Central Luzon.
