A rare oversized Navaja.

This example measures 102cms long when opened and 53cms when folded.
The long handle is constructed from a large single piece of bull horn. Its surfaces are decorated with inlayed brass pins that form diamond patterns.
The ends of the grip are finished in rolled brass sheet that has been deeply decorated with geometric patterns and is of typical Albacete styling.
The large ratchet pivot point has 11 teeth and locks firmly in place.
Half way along the blade it is stamped just below the spine with "FF". The spine lightly file finished. The blade has a deep belly, long clipped tip and a full point.

A fine, rare and rugged example of an oversized Navaja that could have been used as a fighting knife as pictured in romantic images.
