A fabulous Exhibition quality Navaja of large proportions.
Open is navaja measures 57cms, closed 31cms.
This piece is of the highest decorative quality that I have seen in quite some time.
The leaf shaped forged blade has detailed brass bolsters, dot work patterns both sides and brass circle inlay too.
There is script on both sides that I cannot quite decipher. A short phrase on one side something like "Soy Defensa de mi dueno", the other side "Si esta bibora te pica no ay__ remedio en la bo tica". It also has a finely bevelled false edge to the top and three small decorative filed sections to the spine.
The horn handle is decorated in the most detailed brass panel, brass wire and faceted brass panels to the tip. The back spring is nicely shaped though it lacks any other decoration.
A rare and stunning example of a quality Navaja.
